NORWEGIAN company Electromagnetic Geoservices (EMGS) has been awarded a contract by Total E&P Norge to provide 3D electromagnetic (EM) data acquisition and processing over the Frigg field, which is at an advanced stage of decommissioning.
EMGS said the contract calls for application of its proprietary EM technology over the depleted field, which straddles the boundary between the Norwegian and UK Continental Shelves in the North Sea.
The survey will be carried out this month using the purpose-built 3D EM vessel, BOA Thalassa.
Frigg was the world’s largest and deepest offshore gas field when it was discovered in 1971. Field production ended in October 2004.
The aim of the contracted EM work programme is to develop a better understanding of the reservoir as of today.
