This is TGS

TGS was founded in Houston in 1981 and over time built a dominant 2D multi-client data library in the Gulf of Mexico, further expanding into North America and West Africa and adding a substantial 3D portfolio in the Gulf of Mexico to our libraries.

Also in 1981, NOPEC was founded in Oslo and began building an industry-leading multi-client 2D database in the North Sea, with additional operations in Australia and the Far East. In 1997, NOPEC went public on the Oslo Stock Exchange and in 1998, the companies merged to form TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company (TGS), creating a winning combination for investors, customers and employees. Since then, TGS has set the standard for geoscientific data around the world.

The hallmarks of success for TGS over the past 30 years have been dedication to high quality data, exemplary service and strategic global growth in emerging and mature markets. Our company philosophy is to create unique high-quality data collected in the right place at the right time.
