Regional Deep Imaging Campaign

05 June 2019

SeaBird Exploration and MCG are pleased to announce that the Regional Deep Imaging Campaign, consisting of 27,000 km, has commenced. 2,066 km have been acquired in 2018 (RDI18). RDI18 final PSTM data will be ready March 2019

The campaign will continue throughout 2019 (RDI19). 14,000 km acquisition to be started in March/April 2019.

  • Long offset 2D profiles that image large scale, deep seated, crustal structures 
  • Possible to interpret large scale tectonics, Moho and basin geometries
  • Broadband seismic acquisition and processing
  • Cross-border lines - Norway, UK, Faroe Islands, Denmark

Project Objectives:

Acquire a unique data set

  • New broadband seismic acquisition and processing with longer offsets and record length, unlike existing data
  • Extreme long seismic lines (100 – 1,200 km)
  • Cross border lines (Norway, UK, Faroe and Denmark)

Image deeper parts of the Barents Sea, Norwegian Sea and North Sea

  • Long-offset profiles that image large scale, deep seated, crustal structures beneath the Norwegian Barents Sea, Norwegian Sea and North Sea

 Better understand the tectonic setting

  • Possible to interpret large scale tectonics, Moho and basin geometry
  • Seismic lines will link released wells to validate new seismic interpretations

Processing:

  • The processing is headed by the Main Survey Sponsor in collaboration with SeaBird and MCG
  • DownUnder Geosolutions’ (DUG) center in London will undertake the processing
  • The Processing Sequence is designed to meet the requirements from the various survey areas

Expected results:

  • Improve the regional, geological understanding of the area with increased seismic imaging and coverage
  • Establish an updated, modern, basic sequence stratigraphy model based on the results of all the wells in the area
  • Combine previous work done on gravity & magnetic modelling with new seismic interpretation
  • Update deeper interpretation of existing seismic to fully understand the tectonic and depositional history of a basin
  • Define areas of potential new play types
