TGS Kicks Off 5th Season of North Sea Renaissance Seismic Program

TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company has begun its fifth season of North Sea Renaissance (NSR) seismic acquisition. The long offset NSR program currently extends from 54 degrees North (the Gas basin) to 63 degrees North (the Møre Basin) and totals approximately 65,000 kilometers.

Using four seismic vessels in operations this summer, TGS plans to add approximately 20,000 kilometers of 2D by infilling the existing NSR data as well as extending the program into new areas both in UK and Norway to make NSR significantly more complete.

"NSR has turned out to be a reference survey when hunting for deeper stratigraphic exploration and play models in the North Sea." states Kjell Trommestad, VP & General Director, Europe/Russia.

The North Sea Renaissance program is strongly pre-funded and acquired in co-operation with Fugro. The data will be processed by the TGS Imaging group in Bedford and will be available to clients beginning Q4 2007.
