TGS Launches Multi-Client Survey in Labrador Sea

TGS has commenced a new 22,000 km multi-client 2D survey offshore Newfoundland in the Labrador Sea in partnership with PGS.

The new seismic data is being acquired by the M/V Sanco Spirit and utilizes the PGS GeoStreamer® technology. Data acquisition will continue through 3Q 2011 and the vessel will return in 2012 to complete the survey. The survey area is north of oil discoveries including Hibernia, Hebron, Terra Nova and White Rose. The seismic survey covers some areas currently nominated in the Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board’s call for bids (NL-11-03).

"It is important for TGS to return to Eastern Canada after a decade and add data coverage in an area where there is little modern seismic data available to the market. Eastern Canada remains one of the most promising deepwater exploration arenas in the world and we are excited to be a part of it," commented Stein Ove Isaksen, Senior VP North & South America for TGS.

Initial data will be available to clients during 4Q 2011. The survey is supported by industry funding.
