TGS Awarded Three New Multi-Client Surveys

Seismic survey firm TGS announced Wednesday that it has been contracted to carry out three new multi-client surveys in North America. The awards include a 3D survey in the Atwater Valley area of the central Gulf of Mexico, a 3D onshore survey in Alberta, Canada and a 2D survey offshore Newfoundland.

TGS said the Francisco 3D multi-client survey in the Atwater Valley area of the central Gulf of Mexico expands upon a previously-announced survey. Upon completion, the survey will total more than 2,560 square miles of seismic data. Data processing will be performed by TGS using Clari-FiTM technology, the firm's proprietary broadband processing technique. Final data will be available to clients during the fourth quarter of 2014.

Pendryl, a new 3D multi-client onshore survey covering 123 square miles in Central Deep Basin in Alberta, Canada will expand TGS' existing coverage in the emerging Duvernay play. The survey is located southwest of Edmonton and is designed to evaluate multiple zones from Cretaceous to Devonian, including currently producing formations such as Cardium, Glauconite, Nordegg, Pekisko and Duvernay. The seismic data will be processed by TGS's Calgary-based subsidiary, Arcis Seismic Solutions, and final data will be available to clients late 1Q 2014.

The Northeast Newfoundland Shelf 2D survey covering 3,100 miles expands on the previously announced survey offshore Newfoundland. TGS said that, upon completion, the survey will cover 15,500 miles in this region of prolific oil discoveries including Hibernia, Terra Nova, Hebron, White Rose and the more recent Mizzen, Harpoon and Bay du Nord discoveries. The survey will be acquired in partnership with PGS and utilizes PGS's GeoStreamer technology.  Final data will be available to clients during 3Q 2014.
