Acquisition of 3D seismic data completed

01/08/2008 The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate’s acquisition of 3D seismic data in the Troms II area was completed on 31 July as planned.

Despite the delay of the original seismic ship M/V BOS Arctic, and a fire in the engine room of the replacement vessel Atlantic Explorer, seismic data was acquired as planned.

The acquisition of seismic data didn’t start until 3 July, while the planned start-up date was 24 June.
In July, 3D seismic data was acquired in an area delimited by the following coordinates:

69°33'10.30" N – 15°56'01.29" E
69°26'20.00" N – 16°02'00.00" E
69°38'16.00" N – 17°14'50.00" E
