The OGA has released a second Invitation To Tender (ITT) for the 2016-2017 UK Government funded seismic programme.

This tender is for reprocessing legacy seismic data in seven different lots from seven areas around the UK Continental Shelf including the Anglo-Paris Basin; South West Approaches; Bristol Channel and Northern Approaches; Cardigan Bay; Morecambe Bay and Irish Sea; East Shetland Platform (including Fair Isle); and the Minches (including Firth of Clyde). The successful bidders will be required to provide reprocessed legacy seismic data and the rights for the OGA to publish the data products.

Reprocessing Legacy Seismic Data and Rights to Publish Legacy Seismic Data in Seven Areas around the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS)

This tender follows a previous ITT issued last month for acquisition and processing of new regional 2D seismic data in South West Britain and the East Shetland Platform.

2016-2017 Government Seismic Acquisition and Processing Programme

This year’s programme follows the successful delivery of approximately 40,000 km new and legacy seismic data in the Rockall Trough and Mid-North Sea High areas in 2015. The results of this project were published under the Open Government Licence and have been available for download since 31st March 2016 from UK Oil and Gas Data

In addition, and in line with the recently issued OGA Corporate Plan, three separate ITTs are open for regional and field support engineering services, subsurface studies and reservoir evaluation services and geoscience project services. These contracts will replace the current Oil & Gas Maximising Recovery Programme (OGMRP) contracts and will be three years in duration.
