TGS announces second expansion of 3D multi-client seismic data library in the Barents Sea

ASKER, NORWAY (26 July 2011) - TGS has commenced the acquisition of an extension of its multi-client 3D seismic data in the Hoop Fault Complex area of the Barents Sea.  This extension is to the west of the previously announced industry funded Hoop Fault Complex survey and will add 3,391 km2 to the existing data in the area.   Upon completion of the expanded project, TGS will have over 7,300 km2 of contiguous multi-client 3D data over the Hoop Fault Complex.  In conjunction with this multi-client survey, TGS will also acquire approximately 1,100 km2 of seismic data on a proprietary basis for a TGS customer.  
 

Acquisition of the data will be performed by the M/V Polar Duke towing 10 x 6,000 m streamers with 75 m cable separation and acquisition is scheduled to complete during early Q4 2011.  Data processing will be performed by TGS and will be available to clients from Q2 2012.
