Spectrum Commences Phase 2 of the Fingerdjupet-Hoop Multiclient Survey

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 4/9/2014, Location: Europe

Spectrum has commenced acquisition of the Phase 2 broadband 2D seismic survey in the Barents Sea Fingerdjupet-Hoop area. A minimum of 4,600 km will be acquired using the vessel Lazarev from SMNG. This is a continuation of the 2,226 km Phase 1 survey acquired last year. Rock property products for lithology and fluid prediction will also be provided for both Phase 1 and 2 to enhance prospect evaluation.

Furthermore, Spectrum is collaborating with ORG Geophysical AS acquiring a minimum of 5,100 km induced polarization measurements in the same area. Induced Polarization technology is used in various parts of the world and has proven its predictive powers in a number of tests conducted on the Norwegian Continental Shelf in 2012 and 2013. Induced polarization aims to detect and map highly conductive geological bodies in the shallow subsurface using an electric current and a number of receivers towed behind a vessel. These highly conductive bodies are potentially related to micro seepage of hydrocarbons from deeper lying hydrocarbon fields and the results can therefore be used to support mapping of hydrocarbon prospects.

This combined product, which is focused on nominated blocks, will provide the oil companies a unique dataset to evaluate prospectivity of the Fingerdjupet-Hoop area ahead of the 23rd licensing round.

The 2D seismic and Induced Polarization surveys are pre-funded by industry.
