TGS and PGS start new survey in East Shetland BasinProjects and Operations // July 15, 2010
TGS has commenced a new multi-client 3D survey in partnership with PGS. The survey, ESB10, covers an 1,100 km2 area in the East Shetland Basin area immediately west of the UK/Norway border.
Ramform Viking, operated by PGS, is acquiring the multi-client high density 3D survey, utilizing 16 streamers.
The project will allow 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 the second quarter of 2011.
