MCG Extends Its MC2D Barents Super Tie Survey

MultiClient Geophysical (MCG) announced an extension of the multi-client 2D (MC2D) Barents Super Tie towards the east into the newly opened Barents South East (former Disputes Zone between Norway and Russia).

 

The new lines will tie the existing Barents Super Tie in the west to the areas to be covered by the Group 3D Surveys in the Barents South East. In addition, MCG will, in cooperation with SMNG, reprocess 2D seismic data from the Russian side of the Barents Sea tying known discoveries and structures.

This 2D survey will provide the oil companies with a consistent regional MC2D dataset, connecting a majority of the wells in the Norwegian Barents Sea with key fields and wells in the Russian Barents Sea.

This survey will be around 3,500 km and will be acquired by SMNG’s vessel the M/V Akademik Nemchinov.

The 2014 extension of the Barents Super-Tie is 3 500 km and will go through the important structural features of the Norwegian Barents Sea South-East: Finnmark Platform, Tiddlybank Basin, Fedynsky High, Nordkapp Basin and Bjarmeland Platform.
