TGS commences multi-client 2D survey in Northeast Greenland

ASKER, NORWAY (19 August 2013) - TGS has commenced expansion of a 2D multi-client survey in Northeast Greenland.  

The survey, NEG13, will enable customers to prepare for the announced Greenland Licensing Round in 2013/2014. Due to favorable ice conditions, TGS expects to acquire 4,200 km of 2D multi-client seismic data.  This new data will provide companies with dense data coverage over the licensing area and will be a significant addition to TGS' already robust data library in the area.
  
The seismic data is being acquired by the M/V Akademik Shatskiy supported by the ice breaker M/V Balder Viking. A helicopter is being utilized for ice density monitoring. Data processing will be performed by TGS and data will be available to clients in Q1 2014. 
The survey is supported by industry funding.
