Schlumberger, TGS Begin 300-Block Gulf of Mexico Data Acquisition Program

Oilfield services companies TGS and Schlumberger have announced the commencement of a data acquisition program covering over 300 blocks in the Green Canyon, Atwater Valley and Ewing Bank protraction areas of the Central Gulf of Mexico.

The Revolution XIl and XIII surveys will be acquired using the Schlumberger WesternGeco Q-Marine point-receiver marine seismic system combined with the proprietary multivessel, Dual Coil Shooting acquisition technique, which will provide broadband, long-offset, full-azimuth data.

This combination of “leading-edge technology and technique” will improve illumination and imaging of the sub-salt and other complex geologic features in the region, according to a Schlumberger statement. 

Acquisition is expected to complete in late 1Q 2017 with final processed data available in early 2018.

“Together we have a strong track record of success in developing and delivering projects in this prolific part of the Central Gulf of Mexico,” said Kristian Johansen, TGS CEO, in a company statement.

“The Revolution XII and XIII surveys benefit from the latest advances in seismic technology and will provide the exploration and production industry with critical information to support exploration and drilling activity in a region that is expected to remain a priority for our customers,” he added.

The project is supported by industry funding.
