|Thursday, May 10, 2012
TGS has commenced acquisition of a 3D multi-client survey covering 1,239 square miles (3,210 square kilometers) in the Erlend Basin on the UK Continental Shelf, West of Shetlands.
This is the first multi-client 3D survey in the Erlend Basin and builds on the improved imaging shown by the reprocessed TGS North Sea Renaissance 2D data. The survey covers open blocks which were offered in the UKCS 27th licensing round.
The new 3D data expands on TGS' Northern North Sea 3D survey making a total contiguous volume exceeding 3,861 square miles (10,000 square kilometers).
TGS has chartered the M/V Polarcus Samur for the first phase of the acquisition. The remaining acquisition will be completed during the 2012 season by the M/V Polar Duchess, already on charter to TGS. Processed data will be available for delivery and licensing in Q2 2013.
The survey is supported by industry funding.
