NPD maps northeastern Barents Sea

The mapping of the new Norwegian sea area in the eastern Barents Sea which started in 2012 will now be continued.

In the early hours of 29 July, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) started acquisition of 2D seismic in the northeastern Barents Sea.

According to the plan, the acquisition will take place for approx. two and a half months. The NPD is conducting the acquisition on assignment from the Government. Only the NPD is allowed to acquire seismic data in areas that have not been opened for petroleum activity. The acquisition is part of the authorities’ work to gain an overview of potential petroleum resources on the Norwegian shelf.

The acquisition activity, which is a 2D seismic acquisition, is being carried out by the Artemis Atlantic seismic vessel, operated by the company Dolphin Geophysical.
