Northern Viking Graben

JumpStart Integrated Program

The Northern Viking Graben JumpStart™ project integrates key geological and geophysical data in the Northern North Sea with CGG's state-of-the-art BroadSeis™-BroadSource™ multi-client seismic dataset, which covers over 35,000 km². The seismic and gravity acquisition was performed during 2014 to 2016.

50 wells have been analyzed to provide a robust chronostratigraphic framework for the well ties to the seismic. In an iterative process the seismic horizons and well tops have been adjusted to tie, generating a fully integrated data set. Seeps and slicks data from the region have also been acquired and analyzed. 

Seismic AVO attributes and deterministic acoustic inversion have been generated from the existing NVG library.

Key Objectives

  • Revitalize regional exploration by new 3D broadband seismic
  • Provide reservoir attributes 
  • Provide an updated, analyzed and integrated well database
  • Provide regional gravity enhancements for interpretation
  • Support exploration by geochemistry data
