TGS-NOPEC Starts Survey in the Sea of Okhotsk
TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company (TGS) has initiated acquisition of a new multi-client 2D seismic program in the Sea of Okhotsk in partnership with Dalmorneftegeofizika (DMNG). The 5,500 kilometer SA-07 survey is located near Sakhalin Island and is supported by industry pre-funding. The data will be processed by DMNG at its Yutzhno Sakhalinsk processing center and is expected to be available to clients by December.
The 2007 program represents the 4th year in a row that TGS and DMNG have jointly acquired seismic data in the Sakhalin region. Including the new program, the companies will together have over 35,000 kilometers of modern seismic in the area.
TGS and its partners have an extensive geophysical and geological database to aid in future exploration in Russia. Over 40,000 kilometers of modern seismic, 100,000 kilometers of legacy seismic, and numerous geologic studies, well logs, and well reports are available from a variety of offshore and onshore basins in Russia.
