Jon Watson delivers virtual lecture for Robert Gordon University

Last December Jon Watson, Bridgeporth’s General Manger, was asked by Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen to deliver a virtual session for their Petroleum Data Management GradCert course. The session topic was Planning, Acquisition and Processing of gravity and magnetic data and a discussion of the associated information management challenges for this data type. Jon’s audience was made up of 20 students, half from the UK with the rest from Brazil, US, Canada, Netherlands, Nigeria, Ghana. They were from a mix of operators, NOCs, service companies and national data repositories The session was well received and the students really appreciated a practitioner perspective on this topic.

AustinBridgeporth signs Madagascar FTG Survey Contract

Bridgeporth’s parent company, AustinBridgeporth are pleased to announced they have signed an agreement with Oyster Oil and Gas to acquire airborne Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry (FTG) survey in the southern part of Block 1101. The survey is due to start later this month and will total approximately 2,860 line kilometres. Dr Mark Davies, CEO at AustinBridgeporth commented: “We are excited to be working with the team at Oyster once again. Our aim is to provide Oyster the highest quality data to allow them to advance their exploration programme in Madagascar.” For more information click: Oyster Oil and Gas press release and Oyster Oil and Gas website  

AustinBridgeporth completes airborne FTG survey in Greenland

Bridgeporth’s parent company, AustinBridgeporth, has completed acquisition of an Airborne Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry (FTG) survey for Greenland Gas & Oil over their concession in the Jameson Land area of South Eastern Greenland. This is a new frontier oil and gas province that is thought to be closely related to the prolific producing fields of Mid Norway. The processing of the acquired FTG data is nearing completion and will complement the current 2D seismic data and contribute towards developing a better understanding of the structural and sedimentary components of the Jameson Land Basin.

Good things come in small packages

Bridgeporth are working with Glasgow University to deploy their sensitive MEMS based gravimeter in the exploration industry. Initial tests will involve acquiring data alongside a conventional land meter to compare the accuracy, repeatability and usability of this new technology with existing instruments.
