TGS has announced the acquisition of a 3D multi-client seismic survey, The Nerites 3D, which covers 8,300 km2 in the Great Australian Bight, offshore South Australia.
The survey, scheduled to commence in early January 2014, will cover two of the newly released petroleum exploration blocks in the Great Australian Bight, designated EPP 44 and EPP 45, which are located mostly in the Bight’s deep water Ceduna Sub-Basin.
Upon completion of this survey, the TGS total portfolio of 3D multi-client coverage offshore Australia will exceed 30,000 km2.
The new seismic data will be acquired by the Dolphin Geophysical vessel, M/V Polar Duchess. Data processing will be performed by TGS using its proven Clari- Fi(TM) broadband processing technology. Preliminary data will be available to clients beginning Q4 2014.
