TGS Commences GOM Seismic Survey
TGS commenced a 3D multi-client survey covering 2,703 square miles (7,000 square kilometers) in the Central Gulf of Mexico.
The survey, Amerigo 3D, is located in the eastern side of the Central Gulf of Mexico through the Lloyd Ridge, Desoto Canyon and Atwater Valley areas.
"We are pleased to extend our 3D coverage in the Central Gulf of Mexico. This survey enables TGS to leverage our existing adjacent 3D data while utilizing 39,370 feet (12,000 meter) offsets to allow for a deeper image in this attractive play. Industry support of the new survey indicates increasing interest to explore in this region," commented Rod Starr, Senior VP Western Hemisphere for TGS.
The seismic data is being acquired by a Fugro C-class vessel and will be complete 2Q 2013. Data processing will integrate the new Amerigo data with TGS' modern, adjacent 3D data and apply TGS' newest broadband processing technology, Clari-Fi(TM). Preliminary data will be available to clients 3Q 2013.
The survey is supported by industry funding.
