TGS expands 3D multiclient survey in Barents SeaProjects and Operations // August 11, 2011
TGS has commenced the acquisition of an extension of its multi-client 3D seismic data in the Hoop Fault Complex area of the Barents Sea.
The extension is to the west of the previously announced industry funded Hoop Fault Complex survey and will add 3,391 km2 to the existing data in the area.
On completion of the expanded project, TGS will have over 7,300 km2 of contiguous multi-client 3D data over the Hoop Fault Complex.
In conjunction with this multi-client survey, TGS will also acquire approximately 1,100 km2 of seismic data on a proprietary basis for a TGS customer.
Acquisition of the data will be performed by Polar Duke towing 10 x 6,000m streamers with 75m cable separation.
Acquisition is scheduled to complete early in the fourth quarter of 2011.
Data processing will be performed by TGS and will be available to clients from the second quarter of 2012.
