TGS in Gulf of Mexico seismic survey

Norway’s TGS announces acquisition of Snipe Phase 52, a new long-offset 2D multi-client survey in the ultra-deep water, U.S. Central Gulf of Mexico.

The survey will include 12,000 km of data, which supplements TGS’ existing library in the region and, the company says, will provide critical well ties to a number of recent discoveries.

“The new project will provide long-offset, high resolution data required to image potential reservoirs in the lower Tertiary and deeper, as our understanding of the basin and depositional processes continues to evolve,” commented Rod Starr, SVP Western Hemisphere for TGS.

“The Snipe Phase 52 program will extend to the U.S.-Mexico international boundary and will complement TGS’ previously announced plans to acquire 2D data in the southern Gulf of Mexico waters, pending permits from the Mexican authorities.”

The seismic data will be acquired by the Seabird-owned M/V Osprey Explorer towing 12,000 meter cable length. TGS says the project will begin in Q3 of this year and final data will be available to clients in Q4 2015.

In a separate statement, Seabird Exploration, the owner of the vessel, has confirmed the Osprey Explorer contract. The company said the contract will have an estimated value of USD 7.5 million. According to Seabird, the survey will have an estimated duration of 100 days.
