TGS Starts Seismic Gig Offshore AU

TGS has commenced acquisition of a 3D multi-client seismic survey, The Three Bears, which covers 178 square miles (460 square kilometers) in the Carnarvon Basin, offshore NW Australia.

This survey is located adjacent to the Clio and Gorgon gas fields which are currently in the development stage. Upon completion of this survey, the TGS portfolio of 3D multi-client coverage will exceed 6,757 square miles (17,500 square kilometers) in this highly prospective area offshore Australia. TGS is also reprocessing the Cazadores survey which covers 1,680 square miles (4,350 square kilometers) of the Exmouth Plateau region.

The new seismic data is being acquired by the M/V Geo Caspian. Data processing will be performed by TGS and will be available to clients in 2Q 2013.

The survey is supported by industry funding.
