Statoil has supported the development of geophysical reservoir monitoring (GRM) techniques, and through a focused seismic monitoring (FSM) project, successfully piloted permanent reservoir monitoring (PRM) technologies. In this E-Lecture, Mark Thompson tells that this experience culminated in the implementation of two PRM projects at the Snorre and Grane licenses. In December 2012, Statoil awarded a contract to manufacture and deliver approximately 700 kms of seismic cable for PRM installations, representing the largest PRM installation to date. By October 2014, two full PRM systems had been installed with first seismic acquired at both Grane and Snorre, and a second survey underway at Snorre. In less than two years a major PRM project had been successfully executed and first seismic acquired.
