Fourth Acquisition on North Sea EKOFISK Seismic Programme

CGGVeritas, France, will begin acquiring a fourth repeat survey (LoFS04) on the Ekofisk field in the North Sea as part of the multi-year Life-of-Field Seismic (LoFS) programme for which it was awarded both the seismic data acquisition and processing. Mobilisation is scheduled for early June 2012, and the shooting period will last approximately one month in accordance with the LoFS program schedule. The programme is being acquired with a four-component (4C) fibre-optic permanent reservoir monitoring (PRM) solution, deploying 16,000 Sercel OPTOWAVETM ocean-bottom channels. More than two years after the full-scale fibre-optic installation all channel sensors are providing data that is... (read more)
