WesternGeco: Wins 4D seismic contracts from Engie in Norway

ENGIE E&P Norge has awarded WesternGeco two contracts for acquisition and processing of towed 4D seismic data in the production license 153, the Gjøa license, in the northern part of the Norwegian North Sea.

The acquisition will be performed with the vessel “WesternGeco Magellan”, and is planned to be completed by the beginning of August. The planned seismic survey is a repetition of a 3D survey acquired over the Engie E&P operated Gjøa field ten years ago.

License partners in PL153 Gjøa are: Engie E&P Norge AS (operator, 30 pct stake), Petoro AS (30 pct), Wintershall Norge AS (20 pct), Det Norske Shell (12 pct) and DEA Norge (8 pct)

Polarcus: Australia – Bonaparte Basin (GeoExPro)

Polarcus, in collaboration with Spectrum and DownUnder GeoSolutions, is acquiring a 7,200 km2RightBAND™ multi-client 3D seismic survey over the Vulcan Sub-basin, offshore north-west Australia. Historically, sub-optimal acquisition and processing strategies of the legacy data across the basin have not been able to address the geological and geophysical challenges, limiting understanding of existing proven plays and the evaluation of future upside. The broadband survey is being acquired by the Polarcus Naila using an XArray™ configuration of 10 x 112.5m x 8.1 km with a triple source and continuous recording.

ESG & Nexen Energy: Win CSEG Recorder Best Technical Paper of 2016

The Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists Recorder Magazine recently announced their annual awards. “Beyond the Microseismic Clouds: A Comprehensive Approach to Unconventional Gas Development” was awarded the prize for Best Technical Paper of 2016. The paper was written by ESG Co-Founder and CTO Dr. Ted Urbancic, ESG’s Manager of Advanced Analytics Dr. Adam Baig, Nexen Energy’s geophysicist Jason Hendrick, and consultant Eric Von Lunen.

The paper highlights unique geophysical approaches applied to shale resource development, details long-term investment strategy in microseismic technology, and new approaches to analyse and understand the observations allowing users to extract additional information from microseismic signals beyond event locations in relation to hydraulic fracturing.

Geometrics: P-Cable Featured in Seminal Southern California Fault Study

The Geometrics P-Cable system was used to map the Rose Canyon/Newport-Inglewood fault in Southern California.

“A fault system that runs from San Diego to Los Angeles is capable of producing up to magnitude 7.3 earthquakes if the offshore segments rupture and a 7.4 if the southern onshore segment also ruptures, according to a new study led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego.

The Newport-Inglewood and Rose Canyon faults had been considered separate systems but the study shows that they are actually one continuous fault system running from San Diego Bay to Seal Beach in Orange County, then on land through the Los Angeles basin.”
