The Regional Deep Imaging Project (RDI) by MCG and Geoex is a 2D seismic multi-client project that aims to improve imaging of large-scale, deep-seated crustal structures in the Norwegian Barents Sea, the Norwegian Sea, and the North Sea.
“If anyone had suggested that as a geophysically-minded geologist I would end up working in close collaboration with the Professor of Classics at Cambridge University, I would have thought they had taken leave of their senses,” says John Underhill. “But that’s what happened!”
A seismic line displayed in GEO ExPro caught the interest of a dedicated geologist as he spotted a pattern that resembled that of a major oil discovery he knew very well. His observation eventually led to Chevron's application in the Norwegian 20th licensing round for acreage that may include a large prospect along the North Atlantic Volcanic Margin.
Towards the end of October 2012 the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) announced the winners of what was a record-breaking 27th Licensing Round and declared that UK oil and gas investment looked set to flourish as a result.
Atlantic Petroleum is a small independent E&P company with big ambitions. With a strong concentration on technical expertise and some very creative geoscientists, it is looking at some exciting exploration licences on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
