"Initial data quality is extremely promising and we believe that the program will deliver on its promise of a step-change in imaging quality necessary to unlock the Miocene and Lower Paleogene sub-Salt potential in the East Breaks area," said Nathan Oliver Regional President MultiClient NSA.

A combination of PGS' proprietary hyperBeam velocity modeling capability and TTI RTM imaging will be applied with the data available towards the end of 2010.
