Shearwater awarded Isometrix projects in the Barents Sea

Lundin and Spirit Energy have selected Shearwater to deliver two seismic acquisition projects. The new design of the source configuration is aimed to provide a super-high-resolution image with almost zero-offsets and accurate AVO measurements for reservoir property prediction.

Both projects are Flexisource quad-source Isometrix projects with 50 m streamer separation which will deliver a true 3D deghosted high-resolution Isogrid dataset.

The marine acquisition surveys will be carried out by the Amazon Conqueror, starting in Q3.

The Lundin award is under the new multi-year master services agreement and covers approximately 180 sq. km at license PL965 (Lundin 60%, Spirit 40%). The project for Spirit Energy covers 130 sq. km and is at license block PL962 (Lundin 20%, Spirit 60%, Aker BP 20%).

In addition to the unique Isometrix streamer technology, we have redesigned the source configuration down to a very small point source of only 1 m by 3 m. Combined with wide tow and four of the small focused sources, we believe we will obtain a super-high-resolution image with almost zero-offsets as well as give us accurate amplitude versus offset measurements for reservoir property prediction, Per Eivind Dhelie, Senior Geophysicist in Lundin, says.

This novel hybrid acquisition setup, which combines elements from 3D marine and site-survey operations will deliver a very high-resolution dataset that we believe will enable high fidelity imaging of our target, Mark Ackers, Senior Geophysicist in Spirit Energy, comments.
