TGS Announces NOAKA Ocean Bottom Node Seismic Survey Expansion

The NOAKA Ocean Bottom Node (OBN) seismic survey in the Northern North Sea on the Norwegian Continental Shelf has been extended until 2021, according to TGS, a global provider of energy data and intelligence (NCS). In the Norwegian North Sea, the NOAKA22 survey will cover an extra 318 square kilometres of multi-client OBN data in the APA area between Oseberg and Alvheim. With recoverable reserves of more than 500 million barrels of oil equivalents, the NOAKA fields are one of the greatest developments on the NCS. In recent years, there has been a lot of Infrastructure-Led Exploration (ILX) activity in the area, and more prospectivity is expected.

This latest OBN survey is the third to be acquired by TGS in the North Sea in recent years following the initial phase of this program, NOAKA21, and the flagship Utsira OBN project, a joint survey with AGS. TGS will apply the experience and lessons learned from the acquisition and processing of previous surveys. This includes the extraction and use of ultra-long offset signal for FWI-based model building, and full azimuth, high fold, high signal-to-noise ratios, reliable AVO, and ultra-long offsets to illuminate the complex geology for field development and near-field exploration.

Kristian Johansen, CEO at TGS, stated: "TGS continues to lead the way in delivering multi-client OBN data to support E&P companies as they seek to find new hydrocarbon reserves and maximize the longevity of their production activities. We remain committed to providing the industry with the best data for quality subsurface imaging as evidenced by the growing number of OBN surveys in the TGS multi-client library."

The acquisition for NOAKA22 is expected to commence in June 2022, with final processing deliverables anticipated in Q4 2023.
