PGS and TGS have commenced acquisition of a new 20,000km multi-client 2D survey over the Northeast Newfoundland Shelf.

Sanco Spirit has returned to Newfoundland and Labrador, once again utilizing PGS GeoStreamer broadband technology. Data acquisition will continue into early in the fourth quarter of 2012 and the vessel will complete the survey in 2013.

The survey area covers oil discoveries including Hibernia, Terra Nova, Hebron, White Rose and the recent Mizzen discovery.

“Northeast Canada and the far North represent some of the most exciting new deepwater exploration areas in the world today and broadband GeoStreamer data provides an ideal foundation for building a better understanding of its potential,” commented Jerry Witney, PGS Vice President MultiClient, North America.

Initial data will be available for viewing during the first quarter of 2013. The survey is supported by industry funding.
