Hugh amounts of additional oil due to 4D seismic on Snorre and Grane fields  (2015-06-15)
Around 10,000 seismic sensors with 700 km cables are placed on the seabed over the Snorre and Gran fields to monitor liquid flows in reservoirs. The 3 billion NOK cost has already resulted in increased production worth 15 billion NOK. In 2017 it will be decided if another Snorre platform will be built in order to produce the additional oil proven by seismic. Altogether as much as 200 million bbl. of additional oil could be the result. In the article in today's DN two of the featured people involved in the project, Mona Andersen and Ivar Aasheim, are former student at the department.
