CALGARY, CANADA (4 October 2012) - TGS, through its newly acquired wholly-owned subsidiary Arcis Seismic Solutions, is pleased to announce the Cameron River 3D survey, a 470 km2 (181.5 mi2) onshore 3D multi-client project located in NE British Columbia, Canada.
The survey will be acquired along the prolific liquids-rich Triassic Montney and Doig unconventional fairways. High resolution seismic will enable exploration for stratigraphic and structural traps and will illuminate the Cretaceous through Devonian section.
Brad Torry, Managing Director of Arcis commented "We are thrilled to add seismic data to an extensive onshore library in Canada where there have been record seismic land sales over the past four years." "This project demonstrates TGS' ongoing commitment to grow the Arcis business with continued investment in the highly prospective Canadian market," stated Rod Starr, Senior VP Western Hemisphere for TGS.
The seismic data will be processed by Arcis. Intermediate products will be available to the industry in Q1 2013 with final data available in Q2 2013. The survey is supported by industry funding.
