Det norske studying impact of ice on subsurface geology

Offshore staff

TRONDHEIM, NorwayDet norske oljeselskap is collaborating with the Norwegian research institute Norsar.

They aim to obtain data that can provide continuous monitoring of the environment in Norway’s northern offshore areas, in particular on how glaciers move and how the areas responds to changes in the prevalence of ice.

Det norske will use the Norsar data to improve its understanding of the local geological processes and identify weakness zones in the subsurface geology. It hopes to thereby clarify where oil and gas reserves might be located.

Norsar, which monitors the nuclear test ban treaty, operates a network of earthquake monitoring stations in 89 countries that continuously collect data from the tectonics plates and the earth’s crust.

For more than 40 years it has also supported development of new methodology for processing and analysis of advanced seismological data.
