Magseis Fairfield completes innovative CCS monitoring pilot project in the North Sea

September 5, 2022

Magseis Renewables AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Magseis Fairfield ASA, has successfully completed a high-resolution 3D seismic data acquisition offshore Norway over a carbon storage area.

The project utilized Magseis Fairfield’s Extended High-Resolution (XHR) acquisition technology combined with ocean bottom nodes (OBN), to provide detailed imaging of the targeted carbon storage reservoir and the overburden.

The nodes were deployed using Magseis Fairfield’s proprietary node drop and self-recovery technique. This innovative node handling solution removes the need for an ROV vessel , which is a step change towards a more cost effective and efficient node handling solution.

“This project secured funding through industry partners and Gassnova through the CLIMIT program. We are pleased that this project has been successfully completed to further showcase our commercially competitive technology offerings in the renewables market.” says CEO, Carel Hooijkaas.

“We believe that combining our XHR and OBN technology provides superior data quality, and that our innovative solutions reduce the associated costs to a level that will significantly accelerate adoption.” says Renewables Director, Tone Holm-Trudeng.
