The survey will last approximately two months and final, broadband processing will be completed before year end. DownUnder GeoSolutions (DUG) will process the data.

This Super High-Resolution MC2D survey will provide the oil companies with detailed information of the shallow, proven, Jurassic reservoir in the Hoop area.

The Hanssen and Apollo wells, drilled by OMV and Statoil respectively, and the upcoming additional Statoil wells Atlantis and Mercury, as well as blocks for the 23rd Concession Round shows that this area is very attractive to the oil companies. This Super High-Resolution MC2D survey will both be used independently and complimentary to other geophysical data in the area.
