TGS has commenced a new multi-client 3D survey in partnership with PGS.
This project, ESB10, covers an 1,100 km2 area in the East Shetland Basin area immediately west of the United Kingdom/Norway border. Ramform Viking, operated by PGS, is acquiring this multi-client high density 3D survey, utilizing 16 streamers. The project allows TGS and PGS to continue building a multi-client 3D grid south of the successful East Shetland Basin multi-client 3D project acquired in 2009 (ESB09).
The ESB10 multi-client 3D survey is supported by industry funding and data from the survey will be available for customers from Q2-2011.
TGS provides global geoscience data products and services to the oil and gas industry for the exploration and delineation of hydrocarbon reserves. We design and acquire multi-client data projects worldwide that make up our data library of seismic, gravity/magnetic and well data, enhanced by our seismic imaging technology and regional interpretation expertise.
