The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has finalized acquisition of about 4,500 kilometers of 2D seismic data on the Gardarbank High, offshore Norway.

The WesternGeco’s vessel WG Columbus acquired the seismic data.

“The operation was very successful; progress was good and we were able to acquire the entire programme as planned,” said Lars Jensen, the NPD’s project manager for the seismic acquisition.

Gardarbank High is a geological ridge located in the area between the Spitsbergen Bank and Hopen Deep.

In the period 2012 to 2016, the NPD acquired modern seismic data in the eastern part of the Barents Sea North. The results of this work were presented in the spring of 2017.

The 2017 acquisition on the Gardarbank High is a western continuation of this mapping project, and the new data provides improved seismic coverage, NPD said.

The processing of the newly acquired seismic data is expected to be completed in the third quarter.
