OSLO, Norway (12 May 2022) - TGS, a global provider of energy data and intelligence, in partnership with PGS, today announced they have secured pre-funding for the South Bank 3D phase II multi-client project offshore Canada, extending on the South Bank phase I survey acquired in 2020. South Bank 3D Phase II includes the acquisition of 10,000 square kilometers of 3D data, building on the existing library of extensive 2D data coverage in the region.
Kristian Johansen, CEO at TGS, commented, “The TGS and PGS joint venture continues to successfully provide the industry with high quality data and insights ahead of scheduled lease rounds. The South Bank 3D Phase II survey will help clients with the evaluation of the blocks available in the round this November and accelerate drill decisions.”
President & CEO of PGS, Rune Olav Pedersen, said, “We experience continued exploration interest offshore Canada and this is the 12th consecutive year of multi-client GeoStreamer data acquisition in the region. The South Bank phase II multi-client survey expands our 3D data coverage in the Southeast Newfoundland and will cover acreage included in the 2022 Call for Bids license round.”
The Ramform Titan will mobilize for the survey in the second half of May, and acquisition is scheduled to complete in the first half of September.
