ASKER, NORWAY (11 June 2018) - TGS and Petroleum Geo-Services ("PGS") announce that a second vessel, the Ramform Sterling, will be allocated to the 2018 East Canada acquisition program. This vessel will acquire a minimum 2,700 km2of 3D seismic, including additional data within the 2017 Harbour Deep and Cape Broyle 3D survey outlines. Acquisition is expected to complete in Q3 2018.
Following this eighth consecutive season of data acquisition offshore East Canada, the jointly-owned library will have more than 175,000 km of 2D GeoStreamer data and approximately 40,000 km2 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.
Pre-processing of the initial GeoStreamer signal will be performed by PGS onboard the Ramform Sterling, following which TGS will perform data processing using its Clari-Fi™ broadband technology. Fast-track data will be available in Q1 2019 with final data in Q2 2019.
