TGS Launches Seismic Surveys in Barents Sea

TGS reported Thursday that it is about to start the 2013 acquisition season in Europe with two 3D multi-client surveys in the Norwegian Barents Sea.

The Finnmark Platform 2013 survey (FP13) will cover 1,351 square miles (3,500 square kilometers) and the Hoop to Fingerdjupet 2013 survey (HF13) will cover 3,320 square miles (8,600 square kilometers).

Both 3D seismic surveys are being conducted in areas of complex geology and are designed to address specific customer imaging requirements. Data from both surveys will be processed using TGS's proprietary broadband processing technology. The HF13 survey will also tie-in the firm's Hoop 3D area in the east.

The FP 13 survey is scheduled to start this month and will be acquired by the M/V Geo Barents vessel, which will tow eight streamers. The HF13 survey is expected to begin in early 2Q 2013 and will be acquired by the M/V Oceanic Challenger with 12 streamers. Data processing for both surveys will be performed by TGS and initial data will be available to clients during 3Q 2013, the firm added.
