TGS Begins Seismic Surveys Offshore Madagascar

Norwegian survey firm TGS reported Thursday that it has begun the acquisition of 2D seismic, gravity and magnetic multi-client surveys offshore Madagascar. The firm is using its M/V Challenger vessel to carry out the surveys.

The surveys will add some 4,350 miles of new 2D seismic data to extend and infill the 20,650 miles of seismic data that TGS has already acquired in the region.

Data processing will be performed by TGS using its Clari-Fi broadband processing technology, the company said. Final data will be available to clients from the third quarter of 2014.
