    TGS-NOPEC begins surveys offshore eastern Canada

    News // June 20, 2003
    TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company has announced that it has received all federal and provincial authorizations necessary to initiate acquisition of its 2003 season multi-client 2D seismic survey campaign located offshore Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.

    Utilizing the Canadian-flagged vessel M/V Odin Explorer, TGS-NOPEC expects to complete field operations on the 2003 program within five to six months.

    The 2003 Offshore Canada Program will supplement TGS-NOPEC's seismic coverage over key blocks included in Newfoundland's 2003 Call for Bids and will add approximately 12,000 kilometers to the Company's existing 45,000-kilometer comprehensive grid offshore Nova Scotia. Both survey areas are supported with oil industry pre-funding.
