Seismic acquisition company Spectrum has commenced the first phase of a new high-density regional Multi-Client 3D survey, over a 2019 prioritised area of the UK’s Southern North Sea.

The provider of Multi-Client seismic data and Seismic Imaging solutions to global oil and gas exploration company, the survey, which is fully supported and funded by clients, is targeting an area of recently-increased industry focus. It aims to provide improved imaging of the under-explored Zechstein, Carboniferous and Devonian plays in the Southern North Sea.

Industry’s response to the OGA’s Maximising Economic Recovery (MER) initiative has supported Spectrum’s survey concept for the area and forms part of a ‘multi-year’ plan of data coverage of which the initial 1,400 km2 has just commenced.

Clients will receive processed data before the end of 2019 following their involvement throughout the testing and processing phase of the project, it said.

Ian T Edwards, Spectrum’s Executive Vice President for NW Europe and APAC, said “This is the first of several planned new Multi-Client 3D surveys within the region. It follows detailed survey planning and design with input from pre-funding companies."

Edwards said: "This new survey will image the complex, under-explored potential plays that form part of the OGA’s MER initiative, and Spectrum intends to play a key role in stimulating activity in this part of the UK Southern North Sea region by providing high quality affordable data”.
