Var Energi enters joint industry project to develop a more environmentally friendly method for seismic data collection.

Seismic data collection is among the most important tools for hydrocarbon exploration as well as for monitoring field already in production and CO2 sequestration projects in the subsurface. Together with Equinor, Lundin and the marine geophysical company Shearwater GeoServices, Var Energi has established Project BASS.

Alexandre Bertrand, the Geophysical Manager at Var Energi, explains:
The goal of the project is to develop a new low-impact acoustic source. In addition to the environmental dimension, the project also seeks to produce a higher technological accuracy and improved seismic data quality for locating, quantifying and monitoring hydrocarbon resources, which will lead to improved recovery and value creation.

According to R&D Manager Gjertrud Halset at Var Energi, the project could be a game changer:
The BASS project fits our R&D strategy and falls into the top-priority technology gaps and challenges we have identified. The project also matches our plans for becoming the leading ESG company on the Norwegian Continental shelf. Replacing the traditional technology would revolutionize the seismic survey process and strengthen our sustainability performance.
