Norsar_kontrakt

Det norske and research institute Norsar have signed an agreement to gather data that can help to continually monitor the environment in Norway’s northern offshore areas.

The study will focus on how glaciers move and the way areas respond to changes from widespread ice.

Norsar CEO Anne Lycke said: "We look forward to further develop and expand the use of our seismic stations. We continually strive to use our solid expertise within seismology and analyses."

"We continually strive to use our solid expertise within seismology and analyses."

The Norsar data will be used by Det norske to better understand the geological processes, map out weak zones in the subsurface geology, and identify the location of oil and gas. This will further provide a better insight into the geology, including hydrocarbon reserves.

Norsar’s earthquake monitoring stations continuously collect data from the tectonics plates and the earth’s crust.

Det Norske head of research and development Erik Holtar said: "We are very interested in data that can be used in new and different ways.

"This way, we use our research funds to follow unconventional paths to reach the goal of a greater understanding of the subsurface."
