TGS will commence a multi-client 3D survey Offshore Benin in blocks 5 and 6. This project covers roughly 4,000 km2 in the deep water area of Benin. Data acquisition will commence in January 2011 and is expected to be completed in Q2 2011.
This project is the second in a series of surveys along the African Transform Margin, following the Gambia project announced on 5 October 2010. Specialized data processing will be done at TGS’ imaging center in Houston, TX.
The Benin multi-client 3D survey is supported by industry funding.
