TGS partners with PGS for 2D program offshore Canada

TGS, a Norway-based seismic acquisition specialist, announced two new multi-client 2D surveys offshore Eastern Canada, with plans to acquire approximately 30,000 km of seismic data.

Both surveys are in partnership with PGS, utilizing two vessels during the 2015 acquisition season, the company says.

According to TGS, the vessel Atlantic Explorer will acquire approximately 18,000 km of seismic data in the Southeast Grand Bank utilizing the PGS GeoStreamer technology. The acquisition will start  in June 2015.

The company further explained that the seismic vessel Sanco Spirit chartered by PGS, also utilizing the PGS GeoStreamer technology, will acquire  approximately 12,000 km of seismic  in the South Labrador, Northeastern and Eastern Newfoundland area. Data acquisition will start during July 2015.

Both projects will provide data covering expected Areas of Interest (AOIs) to be released by Canada’s Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) as part of the new land tenure system. Pre-processing of the initial GeoStreamer signal will be performed by PGS, following which TGS will perform data processing with final data available to clients in Q3 2016, the company said in a press release.

Katja Akentieva, Senior VP Western Hemisphere for TGS, said: “TGS’ continued investment in this region reflects our support of Newfoundland-Labrador’s  provincial energy strategy, including  more detailed coverage in the expected  future AOIs. Including these new  surveys the total 2D library size in East  Coast Canada will reach approximately 115,000 kilometers since the TGS and PGS  joint  venture  started  acquiring  data  in  2011. In combination with our interpretation products the data will assist our customers with their evaluation of the plays providing a unique insight into this region’s potential.”
