Bow Geo has mapped several very interesting prospects in the APA 2017 area, with great volume potential and DHIs. Bow Geo is also preparing three individual reports covering the APA 2017 area in the Barents Sea. 


Report 1; Semi-regional mapping and prospect evaluation in the Hammerfest Basin APA 2017 area; geological background and analysis of identified prospect portfolio.


Report 2; Semi-regional mapping and prospect evaluation in the Loppa High APA 2017 area; geological background and analysis of identified prospect portfolio.


Report 3; Semi-regional mapping and prospect evaluation in the Western Barents Sea APA 2017 area; geological background and analysis of identified prospect portfolio.

Bow Geo is screening the area for the 24th licensing round


Bow Geo has worked regionally in the Barents Sea for a long time. We have established an extensive prospect portfolio and we have a good overview of the prospectivity in most of the blocks which are out for hearing. Bow Geo is currently preparing a screening report including regional play evaluation, prospect volumetric and risk analysis.

Bow Geo prospect portfolio:

Bow Geo has a numerous of prospects and leads in our portfolio. This database includes also volume estimates, risking, geophysical support etc.

Bow Geo is constantly working to expand and improve our prospect and lead portfolio in concession rounds areas (ordinary concession and APA rounds).

A full and integrated g&g approach is used in the de-risking. Bow Geo has also access and utilizes EM data in areas where we believe it can make a difference

Bow Geo offers assistance to:

Complete applications and G&G services for concession rounds (APA and ordinary concession rounds)

Preparation for concession rounds (e.g., nomination for the 24th Concession Round)

Regional and Semi-regional reports

Farm-In evaluation

Licence follow-up

Other G&G studies

Data and Expertise

Bow Geo has access to public available data (seismic and well data) via Diskos. However, data licenced by the client may be included.

Bow Geo has invested in Petrel licences and specialist software (e.g. for rock physics, petrophysics, seismic reservoir characterization, volume calculation and CSEM work) to complete full and integrated prospect evaluation studies.

Bow Geo has software expertise in Petrel + Blueback plugins, DUG Insight, GeoTeric, PreStackPro, Kingdom Suites, Hampson Russel, RokDoc, Interactive Petrophysics, GeoX, MMRA, OpendTect etc., in addition to numerous graphical softwares (e.g., CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator, ArcGis)


Bow Geo is specialized in subsurface evaluation of the Barents Sea where we have long experience in regional evaluation, prospect evaluation, reservoir analysis, and geophysical evaluation. We have been heavily involved in all concession rounds since the 16th Concession Round on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

In addition, Bow Geo has long experience in evaluation of the Mid-Norwegian shelf (Halten Terrace, Froan Basin, Nordland Ridge, Vøring Basin, Vestfjorden Basin, Ribban Basin etc.).

Prospect evaluation and reservoir development of Palaeozoic carbonates represents a key expertise of Bow Geo. We have been heavily involved in evaluation of Carboniferous and Permian carbonates on the Loppa High and Finnmark Platform. Tommy did his Doctor Thesis on Palaozoic carbonates on the Norwegian continental shelf and has been involved in several publications on this topic.

Bow Geo has also long experience with interpretation and integration of CSEM data together with seismic and geological knowledge in order to reduce risk and increase the understanding of the subsurface. Bow Geo may run complete CSEM projects including follow-up of survey planning, acquisition, processing and interpretation towards CSEM contractors (EMGS, Schlumberger, ORG, Petromarker etc.)
