ASKER (1 August 2013) - TGS announces three new multi-client surveys; a 3D survey in UK West of Shetlands and two 2D surveys offshore Newfoundland-Labrador.
Rona Ridge 2013 (RR13) is a 2,420 km2 3D survey that will provide the industry's first 3D data in the highly prospective UK West Shetland Basin. Data processing will be performed by TGS with initial data available to clients in Q4 2013 ahead of the UK 28thLicensing Round.
The Labrador Sea Deep Basin 2D survey covering 3,000 km and the Labrador Sea 2D Infill survey covering 7,100 km will complement and infill the existing 22,167 km of 2D data acquired in 2011 and 2012. These surveys will further define and delineate the Henley, Chidley and Holton Basins. Both surveys will be acquired in partnership with PGS and utilize the PGS GeoStreamer®technology. Data acquisition will commence in August 2013 and initial data will be available to clients Q2 2014.
All three surveys are supported by industry funding.
