When initiated in October 2003, the Deep Resolve survey totaled 200 OCS blocks. Deep Resolve is being recorded with a combination of long offset (9000 meters) multi-pass streamer and ocean bottom cable technology.
Preliminary results from pre-stack Kirchoff time migration processing and long offset acquisition have demonstrated significantly improved resolution of seismic events in both the Miocene-aged deep gas trend and the shallower, more traditionally explored Plio-Pliestocene aged geology.
Additionally, TGS has secured pre-funding for and commenced pre-stack depth migration processing of the Deep Resolve survey utilizing TGS Imaging's latest wave equation depth imaging techniques. Just as the Deep Resolve survey initiated a renaissance of long offset regional seismic exploration in Louisiana, the depth processing of Deep Resolve signals the dawn of a new era of regional depth imaging on the Gulf of Mexico Shelf.
