PGS wraps up East Shetland Basin seismic survey
- Operations & Maintenance
PGS has completed the acquisition of the East Shetland Basin 2020 survey utilising Ramform Tethys vessel.
The first results of the survey will be available in August.
Despite the ongoing challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, crew changes were carried out safely and efficiently, PGS said.
Both the exclusion zones of the Western Isles FPSO and the Tern platform led to expected coverage holes that will be filled with vintage data to deliver full coverage within the entire survey area.
The seismic data is being processed in the company’s Weybridge Imaging center and early results will be available in August.
The Ramform Tethys is now in transit to the Barents Sea and will acquire another multi-client survey, extending the coverage in the Hammerfest basin.
