TGS and Polarcus have begun conducting a sparse ocean bottom node (OBN) survey in the Atlantic Margin off the coast of mid-Norway.

This initial study phase is being conducted primarily to provide proof of concept ahead of anticipated further survey proposals to further highlight hydrocarbon potential in the region.

The new survey will coincide with the acquisition of a separate seismic survey by TGS at the same location to enhance efficiencies and combine the recorded OBN data with conventional 3D streamer data to improve imaging of sediments below complex volcanic deposits.
