22 September 2014OSE
ASKER, NORWAY (22 September 2014) - TGS is pleased to announce the continuation of its Explorer Series seismic acquisition program in the deepwater U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Panfilo 3D will add 11,500 km2 to TGS' multi-client library in the Lund and Henderson Central Gulf of Mexico protraction areas. Acquisition will commence in Q4 2014 with the M/V Polarcus Adira towing ten kilometer streamers to image regional stratigraphy and deep basin structures. Data will be available in late 2015.
Rod Starr, Senior VP Western Hemisphere for TGS commented, "This data volume will represent a continued investment in the deep water region of the Gulf of Mexico and will provide new, high quality data over mainly open acreage, which will be available to industry in future lease rounds."
This project is supported by industry funding.

In addition to extensive global geophysical and geological data libraries that include multi-client seismic data, magnetic and gravity data, digital well logs, production data and directional surveys, TGS also offers advanced processing and imaging services, interpretation products, permanent reservoir monitoring and data integration solutions.
