ARKeX and ION offshore Greenland - largest ever offshore gravity survey

Thursday, August 16, 2012

ARKeX, a UK provider of gravity gradiometry surveys, reports that it has completed a "Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry" (FTG) survey offshore Greenland for Ion Geophysical.

The survey covers 50,000 km2, making it the largest single offshore FTG survey ever carried out, ARKeX says.

It covers areas of the blocks which are on offer to the KANUMAS Group, incorporating ExxonMobil, Statoil, BP, Japan National Oil Corporation (JNOC), Chevron, Shell and the Greenland publicly owned company NUNAOIL A/S.

It also covers blocks which will be made on offer to the general industry in Greenland's 2013 license rounds.

The FTG data is currently being integrated and jointly interpreted with ION's 2D Northeast Greenland "SPANTM" program data.

The interpretation is expected to be completed by September 2012 and the report along with the data will be available to licence on a non-exclusive basis.

"ARKeX's airborne FTG survey can provide a 3D image set that once integrated with ION's 2D GreenlandSPAN, will afford potential operators in the region with the clearest picture to date of the area's potential," says Phill Houghton, VP New Ventures, ARKeX.
