PGS and OFG to build database on Norway’s seafloor mineral deposits
OFG and PGS will provide conditioned, action-ready data and interpretations to guide the development of a sustainable minerals sector, based on rich multiphysics results just released by the NPD and the University of Bergen.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has carried out annual research surveys on and around the Mohns and Knipovich ridges since 2018. OFG participated in three of the four studies.
- Understand the mineral systems and the environments they support
- Guide exploration activities
- Guide development of technology to detect, characterize and extract mineral deposits
Using a new workflow to condition, analyze, and interpret the released dataset, OFG and PGS are preparing to build a database for use throughout the exploration, characterization, and development lifecycle.
OFG and PGS Multiphysics Portfolio
Together PGS and OFG offer the broadest range of marine geophysical data, technology, and services in the energy industry today.
OFG has participated in over 25 seafloor mineral exploration cruises over 15 years, collecting acoustic, electric, magnetic, electromagnetic, and geological data to find and characterize these resources.
PGS is the industry leader in integrated 3D seismic acquisition and imaging. PGS is participating in research consortiums to develop current technology and understand how seismic acquisition can be applied to detect marine minerals more efficiently.
