TGS announces new Multibeam and Seep Study Project in the MSGBC Basin

18 September 2018OSE

ASKER, NORWAY (18 September 2018) - TGS is pleased to announce its first regional offshore MSGBC SeaSeep Project in the North West Africa Atlantic Margin.  

The program will cover an area of approximately 113,500 km2 and will incorporate around 230 cores from the seabed, located based on multibeam backscatter anomalies. Acquisition of the multibeam will commence early Q4 2018 with the coring and geochemistry stage to follow. Final results will be available in Q2 2019.

"The data generated from the SeaSeep technology is proving to be a complementary and valuable addition to our multi-client library. The multibeam, coring and geochemical analysis provides our customers with further insight and understanding of regional prospectivity. Following its successful implementation in the Gulf of Mexico and Brazil, we are pleased to expand the use of this technology into the emerging MSGBC basin", commented Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS.

This project is supported by industry funding.
