ARKeX has recommenced acquiring a Multi-Client Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry (FTG) survey within the South Eastern Barents Sea. The survey, started last year but postponed due to weather, will cover 42,784 Sq. km over the proposed NPD licencing areas.
The principal aim of the marine FTG survey is to provide a high resolution gravity gradiometry dataset to help delineate complex structural features that can be associated with hydrocarbon-bearing basins and trapping structures. Faults, salt morphology and basement structure are readily highlighted. Initial results from this regional survey are very promising and already the value of FTG data within this geologically complex region is clear.
