TGS Announces the Atlantic Margin 2019 Survey in the Norwegian Sea

ASKER, NORWAY (4 June 2019) TGS announces today the Atlantic Margin 2019 3D multi-client project in the Norwegian Sea. The survey will cover approximately 8,000km2 and will be acquired by Shearwater using the vessel Polar Duchess. This vessel has an acquisition specification designed to secure recording of refracted wavelets at target depths for full waveform inversion (FWI), while triple source will ensure high spatial resolution.

The 2019 acquisition will mainly cover open acreage available in the yearly APA licensing rounds. This area covers several play models with proven hydrocarbon systems in multiple geological layers. However, it presently has little existing and no modern 3D data available. Fast-track data will be available by Q4 2019 and final product delivery is planned for Q3 2020.

 “We are very pleased to announce this continuation of the Atlantic Margin 2017 and 2018 acquisition. The entire Atlantic Margin project will now cover more than 50,000kmof the Norwegian Sea, and will provide the industry with the highest quality data in advance of scheduled licensing rounds in Norway. We will continue to prioritize this high potential region, and look forward to playing a dynamic role in future developments so that we can continue to help E&Ps make better drilling and investment decisions,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS.
