Norwegian surveyor TGS is expanding its multi-client library offshore Eastern Canada, with plans to acquire approximately 2,000 square kilometres of 3D seismic data in partnership with PGS.
The survey will be acquired utilizing the PGS GeoStreamer technology. Data acquisition will commence during the summer season 2016. Pre-processing of the initial GeoStreamer signal will be performed by PGS following which TGS will perform data processing with final data available to client in the third quarter 2017.
The new data will strengthen the existing portfolio of 3D datasets. Currently the library consist of over 112,000 kilometres of modern 2D data and 9,172 square kilometres of 3D data, owned jointly with PGS, in addition to 83,700 kilometres of TGS vintage data.
“We are building upon our extensive knowledge derived from previous 3Ds and the multi-year 2D programs acquired in partnership with PGS. This project will provide valuable data to exploration companies to further de-risk their prospects,” commented Kristian Johansen, CEO, TGS.
The project is supported by industry funding.
