Just weeks after Royal Dutch Shell Plc was forced by a court to suspend a seismic survey seeking hydrocarbons in South African waters, activists are looking to block another such program.
CGG announced phase three of its dual-azimuth multi-client 3D survey in the Northern North Sea. Initial data from the phase three acquisition are expected to be available in early 2023, and final processed data in early 2024.
The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is not allocating funding for the 2022 offshore seismic program and as such, the program will cease for this year. The Newfoundland and Labrador Oil and Gas Industries Association is disappointed with this decision and encourages the Provincial Government to reconsider for this year and to plan an offshore seismic program for 2023.
The vessel hired by Royal Dutch Shell Plc to look for potential oil and gas fields is on course to leave South African waters after community groups won a court case to temporarily halt the activity.
TGS and WesternGeco announced the continuation of their ultra-long offset ocean-bottom node acquisition in Green Canyon, U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Data processing and imaging are by WesternGeco.
