    TGS-NOPEC Geophysical secures 3D reprocessing project

    Projects and Operations // November 7, 2003
    TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company has announced that it has initiated an extensive reprocessing project called MC Revival on over 14,000 square kilometers (627 OCS blocks) of 3D seismic data located in the Mississippi Canyon area of offshore Louisiana.

    Employing the latest algorithms for 3D Kirchhoff pre-stack time migration (PSTM), TGS-NOPEC will offer migrated gathers as well as several partial stack volumes to facilitate advanced amplitude vs offset (AVO) analysis. Supported with customer pre-funding, the project will be delivered in three phases with final completion scheduled during the third quarter of 2004.

    TGS-NOPEC's original Mississippi Canyon 3D program was acquired in 1999-2000 with 8000-meter streamer offsets. It remains one of the most widely utilized surveys for exploration in the Mississippi Canyon area as well as one of the largest regional 3D seismic programs ever recorded in the Gulf of Mexico.
