22-Oct-2014 D-PMSS™ Statoil – Snorre & Grane Permanent Reservoir Monitoring Update
WGP continues to operate Statoil’s Dual Portable Modular Source System (D-PMSS™), designed and built by WGP and mobilised on the ‘Siddis Sailor’, on the third Permanent Reservoir Monitoring (PRM) survey in the North Sea. Survey 3 is the first where Grane and Snorre fields will be shot consecutively, a total of 5,760 sail kilometres, using the D-PMSS’ dual array, flip-flop, with 25 metre shot interval. Both surveys require close pass operations taking advantage of the mobilised vessel’s familiarity with the fields.
Additional surveys were completed on 2 other Statoil oilfields in between survey 2 and 3 this year, demonstrating the versatility of the portable solution. Repeat surveys are contracted until earliest 2018.
