Polar Duchess starts 3D seismic sweep offshore Norway

 Offshore staff

BERGEN, Norway – Dolphin Geophysical’s Polar Duchess has started work on a new 3D seismic survey in the Norwegian North Sea.

The 3,500-sq km multi-client UtStord survey, in an area that has brought recent large discoveries, could take up to four months to complete, with prioritized acreage acquired first. To assist clients’ initial acreage reviews, Dolphin will perform high-end fasttrack processing onboard the vessel followed by full pre-stacked depth migration (PSDM) at the company’s UK processing center.

More oil companies could join the program soon.
