Fugro Begins 2D Seismic Program in the Gulf of Mexico

Fugro Multi Client Services has started the Deep Focus Long Offset Regional 2D seismic and gravity program in the Deepwater Gulf of Mexico and Texas continental shelf. The first phase of 22,000 line miles is now in progress with the recently upgraded survey vessel Geo Arctic.

The data from this survey is to be available for the August 2003, MMS Western Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale. The initial phase is part of a planned 80,000 line mile program, providing important well ties and a new generation of long-offset coverage over all the Deepwater Gulf of Mexico, complementing the existing 2 x 2 mile gravity and 1 x 1 mile aeromagnetic datasets currently owned by Fugro.
