|Monday, January 07, 2013
TGS, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Arcis Seismic Solutions, has commenced acquisition of a 3D multi-client onshore survey, Ille Lake, covering 70 square miles (180 square kilometers) in the deep basin of Central Alberta, Canada.
The Ille Lake survey is optimized and designed to evaluate multiple zones from the Cardium and the Upper & Lower Mannville (Glauconite, Ostracod & Basal Quartz Oil), through to the newly emerging Duvernay unconventional play. In addition to the survey's optimal acquisition parameters, Arcis provides proprietary tools that will enhance imaging and rock property assessments for even greater assistance with the placement of horizontal wells.
The seismic data will be processed by Arcis and final data will be available to the industry in 1Q 2013. The survey is supported by industry funding.
