CGG has announced that Robertson Geolab, specialists in surface geochemistry in its GeoConsulting business line, is currently performing a multi-client surface geochemistry (shallow core) survey to detect seafloor seepages of hydrocarbons in the South East Barents Sea. The project has received high prefunding from major oil industry players.

The survey covers all the blocks in this region which have been recently proposed by the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD), as well as sampling of outlying sub-areas where hydrocarbon seepages are suggested to be present by methods including satellite image analysis from NPA Satellite Mapping. The coring method used has minimal environmental impact, being simply the dropping of a thin, clean iron core barrel and penetrates the seafloor sediments to a few meters depth to retrieve mud samples.
