Covering more than 500 km2, the seismic campaign aimed to generate high-resolution imaging of the CO2 storage complex and to provide a baseline for monitoring of the storage integrity. The Poseidon 3D seismic survey was executed successfully within schedule and budget.
In March 2023, OMV (Norge) AS and Aker BP were awarded the Poseidon licence (licence number EXL005) in accordance with the CO2 Storage Regulations on the Norwegian continental shelf. The licence has a work program which includes a 3D seismic acquisition and related studies, followed by a drill-or-drop decision by 2025 at the latest. Poseidon is a 50/50 partnership, operated by Aker BP.
