This is the first time CGG has acquired a 3D multi-client survey in the Norwegian North Sea using its proven broadband marine solution and the project has received high prefunding from the industry. The Halten Terrace survey or Steppingstone Phase 1 covers 2,260 km² over the highly prospective Halten Terrace and targets the southern trend of already producing Jurassic reservoirs and discoveries in the Cretaceous. The survey is being acquired by the Oceanic Champion and the operation is expected to last three months. The BroadSeis acquisition and processing parameters for this survey are being optimized to focus on providing better imaging of prospective Jurassic rotated fault blocks, inversion anticlines and shallow targets. The survey is expected to open up potentially prospective late Cretaceous/Tertiary turbidite plays to the west. Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: "After the success of several proprietary BroadSeis surveys for clients offshore Norway in 2011 and 2012 we decided to make our technology and experience available for this first BroadSeis 3D multi-client survey in the Norwegian shelf. Close dialogue with oil companies operating in the area confirmed strong industry interest for this high-end technology to produce the new and modern 3D data needed to improve imaging of the complex geology. We believe that our BroadSeis multi-client data set will bring valuable insight to the industry and increase exploration activity in this high-potential area."
