NPD to sell 3D seismic data southeast of Troll

Offshore staff

OSLO, Norway – The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) will sell 3D seismic data from an area southeast of Troll. The data covers block 31/5 as well as a small part of block 31/4.

The agency said the sale is part of its overall directive to make data easily accessible to the industry in all phases of activities on the Norwegian continental shelf.

NPD acquired the seismic data in September 2008. Acquired by the Ramform Challenger, the data covers 300 sq km (116 sq mi) and was processed by CGG during 2008-2009. The survey was undertaken to map the subsurface for potential CO2 storage sites.

The name of the survey is: NPD-TW-08-3D-TROLLCO2

In 2009, this work was transferred from the NPD to GASSNOVA. GASSNOVA continued the work and acquired an additional 3D survey to the south – a direct extension of the NPD-TW-08-3D-TROLLCO2.
