Offshore Canada

Comprehensive subsurface data for your exploration needs

Offshore Canada

The oil and gas industry is experiencing ever increasing pressure to reduce risk, time, and costs of operations. Access to seismic surveys, standardized well data, and detailed interpretations are crucial to companies to allow them to fast-track basin evaluation for bid round analysis, as well as provide the regional “big picture” to support asset-focused teams. TGS’ comprehensive collection of subsurface data and interpretation products library in East Canada is an invaluable resource.

TGS has been active in this region since 1998 and follows the regional market trends and business environments when seeking out new opportunities for investment. The TGS exploration programs are most often built around specific provincial licensing rounds and are designed to provide regional geological understanding. A typical set of integrated products would include regional 2D seismic, basin wide 3D seismic, gravity, magnetics, well data packages, regional multibeam, geochemical analysis, and varied interpretive products using all datasets available. TGS has been in a joint venture agreement with PGS for surveys acquired since 2011.

The seismic data acquired offshore Eastern Canada was acquired with longer offsets which enabled explorers to see and evaluate potential AVO plays.

Beginning in 2011, in addition to the longer offsets, GeoStreamer® Broadband acquisition provided unmatched data quality.

Data Coverage & Projects

Since 2011, the TGS and PGS jointly-owned library has added more than 187,000 kilometers of 2D GeoStreamer data and approximately 55,000 square kilometers of 3D GeoStreamer data.

An expansive well log library is also available in the region, along with advanced multi-client interpretation products that will improve play, trend and prospect delineation.  In total, TGS has over 55,000 square kilometers of 3D and over 270,000 kilometers of 2D.

Well Data Products

Our solution gives geoscientists the subsurface depth and breadth of knowledge to understand drilling risks, reduce uncertainty, and improve well performance.​ Fast and easy access to TGS' vast library of well data is available through R360, our unique subsurface intelligence portal.

Geoscience Interpretation

Basin-wide studies combine TGS’ unparalleled volumes of well and seismic data with geological expertise, developed over 8 years, to provide insights that accelerate the exploration-cycle and reduce risk.


2D Data from the Flemish Pass and Orphan Basin regions, acquired between 2012 and 2015, are currently being reprocessed with the latest algorithms for demultiple, noise reduction and improved velocity control. All 2D Data from the Labrador Sea region, acquired during 2011 through 2015, have been reprocessed in 2017 producing improved imaging.

In 2012, LS108 was the first vintage dataset in offshore Newfoundland and Labrador to be reprocessed.  NF101, OB107, and OB102 were subsequently reprocessed, utilizing TGS's Broadband Clarifi deghosting processing algorithms.
