Norwegian seismic firm TGS has started the Eastern Delta Refocus 3D ocean bottom seismic (OBS) imaging program in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
TGS said on Thursday that this reprocessing project marked the next phase of imaging over the mature, hydrocarbon producing areas of Main Pass and Viosca Knoll.
According to the company, the program will further illuminate the key subsurface structures and provide new insight into the prospectivity within the deeper Mesozoic section by applying advanced imaging techniques in this highly successful region.
TGS plans to reprocess an area of approximately 2,250 square kilometers in order to provide a regional product, helping E&P companies to fully explore the new plays in this area.
The project, supported by industry funding, started in the first quarter of 2020 with final data available in the fourth quarter of the year.
Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS, said: “This project has been launched following increased client interest in the area, with recent leasing of acreage and exploration plans targeting the highly prolific Norphlet play.
“Combined with our vast library of well information and our trusted imaging solutions, we continue to provide customers with the most comprehensive subsurface insight in the Gulf of Mexico.”
