TGS Kicks Off Kansas Seismic Shoot

TGS has commenced acquisition of the Bucklin multi-client 3D onshore survey in the United States. The newest onshore project is 280 square miles (725 square kilometers) in size and is located in Ford and Kiowa Counties in Southern Kansas.

The Bucklin seismic program is designed to illuminate the Mississippi Lime Play and aid in the development of this shallow oil rich play. The Bucklin survey is being acquired utilizing a hi-channel count vibroseis crew. Final deliverable products will be processed using pre-stack time migration.

"This marks the second project in unconventional basins for TGS in 2012. Customers have been very supportive of our project ideas and we are looking forward to expansion into this promising play," said Stein Ove Isaksen, Senior VP North & South America.

Data will be available to clients 4Q 2012. The survey is supported by industry funding.
