Volcanic Basin Petroleum Research AS (VBPR) is a research and consulting company based in Oslo, Norway. We have since the start in 1999 specialized in multi-client projects in collaboration with leading service companies and academic institutions.

VBPR led the development of the P-Cable high-resolution 3D seismic technology since 2001, and co-founded the P-Cable 3D Seismic AS (P3S) company in 2008. P3S was sold to the Houston-based company NCS Subsea in July 2016. VBPR is the co-owner of an extensive multi-client P-Cable data base in the Barents and Norwegian seas, and will continue to work with P-Cable data and surveys. See Products for information about the multi-client P-Cable data base.

VBPR also work on integrated geological and geophysical interpretation projects and seafloor sampling studies in volcanic basins and margins around the world. Project results are presented in multi-client reports that are offered to the oil and gas industry for identifying petroleum prospects and reducing exploration risks. See Products for more information.

VBPR's main target areas are along the margins of the north Atlantic and Arctic oceans, in particular the Møre and Vøring basins, Barents Sea, East Greenland, Jan Mayen Ridge, and West Greenland. But our work encompasses volcanic basins world-wide, e.g. South Africa, India, Australia, Siberia, Argentina and Brazil. See Publications for a comprehensive listing of results.
