Searcher’s UtStord 3D seismic survey includes coverage to the new Zulu gas discovery by Lundin, which is close to the giant Johan Sverdrup discovery, offshore Norway.
The 5,080 km2 UtStord 3D seismic survey is a joint project with Dolphin Geophysical and is located partly over the highly prospective Utsira High extending into the Stord Basin to the East.
The discovery by Lundin highlights the hydrocarbon potential in the Miocene Utsira Formation sand and uncovers a new exciting play type in the area.
The UtStord survey covers larger areas where no 3D surveys currently exist.
Interpretation of the final 3D volume has revealed several promising leads at numerous stratigraphic intervals including the potential for spill migration from proven fields further west.
