TGS to expand African multi-client library with new 2D seismic survey

TGS, a provider of multi-client geoscience data to oil and gas companies, has decided to expand its multi-client library offshore Africa by an additional 11,500 kilometers of long offset broadband 2D seismic data in cooperation with PGS and GeoPartners.

Namely, the expansion regards the Northwest African Atlantic Margin (NWAAM) area, more precisely the Mauritania-Senegal-Gambia-Bissau-Conakry (MSGBC) region.

TGS said on Friday that, apart from the acquisition of 2D broadband seismic data in the mentioned areas, the expansion will entail magnetic and gravity data, in the Republic of Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and the AGC joint exploration zone between Guinea-Bissau and Senegal.

The company added that the acquisition of this first phase of the NWAAM expansion would begin in November 2016.

According to TGS, the NWAAM 2017 seismic survey has been designed to infill, extend and complement the company’s NWAAM 2D survey from 2012.

BGP’s Dong Fang Kan Tan 1 seismic vessel, equipped with a 12 km deep-tow streamer, will record high-quality broadband 2D seismic data, which will image the pre-rift, syn-rift and post-rift plays evident in this basin.

Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS, said: “This new seismic acquisition confirms TGS’ commitment to the leading frontier basin in Africa, where TGS already has over 28,000 kilometers of 2D data and over 18,000 square kilometers of 3D data.”
