Spectrum Launches Airborne Multi Client Survey in Barents Sea South East
Spectrum reports that the mobilization has commenced for the acquisition of an airborne gravity/magnetic/seep Multi-Client survey in the Barents Sea South East. The survey will cover the entire newly opened area with approximately 29,280 km to be acquired.
Spectrum is excited to announce that the survey aircraft will also carry, on an experimental basis, the new revolutionary GRAVEX high-sensitivity gravity sensing system, that not only measures gravity but also gravity gradients.
If successful, it will be the first time ever data from this instrument will be presented to the industry. Also the Seepfinder sensor, applied to detect oil-seeps from the sea floor into the water, will be introduced for the first time on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
