Norway surprised many observers in June by announcing plans for a licensing round that signalled a major expansion of the availability of areas for oil exploration in the Norwegian sector of the Arctic Sea.
Review of new 3D seismic data in the Faroe-Shetland Basin has revealed new hydrocarbon potential of the Early Cretaceous syn-rift and Precambrian fractured basement plays along the northern extent of the Rona Ridge - one of the least mature producing regions on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).
GeoStreamer X, a faster, smarter acquisition and subsurface imaging solution, reveals greater hydrocarbon potential in the Viking Graben by illuminating complex geological targets, with a significantly reduced environmental footprint.
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.
The locals call them ‘Kerry Diamonds’; beautifully clear, euhedral quartz crystals found in fault zones at the western end of the Dingle Peninsula in south-west Ireland – but the real gem is the Peninsula itself!
