22-Oct-2014 P-Cable High Resolution 3D Data Acquisition Update
WGP Survey Ltd in, partnership with TGS Nopec AS, has completed 2014’s multi-client/proprietary survey of prospects in the Barents Sea region using the P-Cable system onboard the ‘Bergen Surveyor’, prior to the 23rd license round that is expected to be announced shortly. The rapidly deployed P-Cable system, a short offset high resolution 3D towed streamer array with a 300in3 source and full QC and onboard processing, has enabled WGP to shoot in excess of 575km2 in 4 months despite weather and seismic interference challenges. Examples of the ultra-high resolution of the data deliverables, that continue to impress, can be seen at WGP’s stand. Further work is planned for 2015.
