Magseis has successfully started acquisition on the South Arne field in the Danish sector of the North Sea.
The survey area is in the center of the producing field, with multiple surface and subsurface obstructions. A total of 15 receiver lines and 90 source lines will pass within the surface exclusion zones, and many of the receiver lines in the central area will be laid over pipelines and other subsurface infrastructure. In addition, there are many ongoing oilfield activities such as tanker loading, rock dumping and rig moves, making it a complex web of simultaneous operations.
The South Arne project is expected to occupy the Artemis Athene into Q4 2014.
