Seismic campaign for Poseidon CCS successfully completed

Aker BP (operator) and OMV have successfully completed the acquisition of a 3D seismic survey over the Poseidon CCS licence area (licence EXL005) in the Norwegian North Sea, situated approximately 100 km off the Norwegian coast.

The seismic acquisition campaign was carried out by PGS with the vessel Ramform Atlas. Covering more than 500 km2, the campaign aimed to generate high-resolution imaging of the CO2 storage complex and to provide a baseline for monitoring of the storage integrity.

The Poseidon 3D seismic survey was safely executed within schedule and budget.
