TGS hires Polarcus vessel for GoM survey

Polarcus Limited has signed a Letter of Award with TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company ASA for the charter of a Polarcus A-Class 3D seismic vessel offshore US Gulf of Mexico.

TGS is continuing its Explorer Series seismic acquisition program in the deepwater U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Panfilo 3D will add 11,500 km(2) to TGS’ multi-client library in the Lund and Henderson Central Gulf of Mexico protraction areas.

Acquisition will start in Q4 2014 with the M/V Polarcus Adira towing ten kilometer streamers to image regional stratigraphy and deep basin structures. Data will be available in late 2015.

Rod Starr, Senior VP Western Hemisphere for TGS commented, “This data volume will represent a continued investment in the deep water region of the Gulf of Mexico and will provide new, high quality data over mainly open acreage, which will be available to industry in future lease rounds.”

The project is supported by industry funding.
