TGS-NOPEC has extensive experience with long-offset acquisition in Gulf of Mexico with the company's Phase 50 2D and Deep Resolve 3D seismic programs. The NSR concept represents an extension of the company's technical success with these programs to North Sea waters. The NSR program was initiated last year as a 3,300-kilometer pilot program that proved better resolution of deeper geological sequences and detected hydrocarbons on long-offset data previously never recorded. The 2004 NSR program is pre-funded by several oil companies.
