ASKER, NORWAY (12 May 2011) - TGS commences the second season of multi-client 3D seismic acquisition in the Moray Firth, offshore United Kingdom.   The survey, MF11, will add over 2,500 km of new 3D data to the previous project area announced last June.
The M/V Oceanic Challenger will acquire the MF11 survey. Data collection is scheduled to be complete by the end of Q3 2011. Data processing will be performed by TGS and will include time processing and depth imaging deliverables. 

The survey area covers open and licensed acreage north and east of the previous project, including coverage of the Halibut Horst trend and acreage around the Kildare and Buchan Fields.  Upon completion of this newest 3D multi-client project, TGS will have a total of 4,700 km2 of contiguous data in the area. Data from the Moray Firth 2011 survey will be available for customers from Q2 2012. The survey is supported by industry funding.
