US Gulf of Mexico

An estimated 19 billion barrels of oil and 86 trillion cubic feet of gas are estimated to be recoverable in the US Gulf of Mexico (GoM), offering a large reward for operators that have continued to explore in this region. In response, TGS seismic and interpretation programs are designed to support operators and, in return, have helped several discoveries including the giant fields of Mars/Ursa, Thunderhorse, Blind Faith, Appomattox and many others. With large-scale 2D seismic acquisition, interpretation programs, and modern Multiple Azimuth 3D surveys that have begun to clearly image salt features and pre-salt sediments, TGS continues to expand our portfolio with projects that promote exploration and assist our customers with their activity in the GoM.

    TGS Announces Next Phase of Ultra-long Offset Node Projects in U.S. Gulf of Mexico

    Following the highly successful Amendment Phase 1 project acquired in Mississippi Canyon in 2019, TGS, in strategic collaboration with Schlumberger, announced the second phase of their ultra-long offset node project in U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The next phase will extend the footprint of ultra-long offset data to the Northern Green Canyon protraction area and will be called “Engagement”.  This area is characterized by complex geology and multiple salt bodies, driving industry towards a new approach to illuminate the subsurface structures.  The combination of ocean bottom node data, used to record ultra-long of...

    TGS Announces Declaration Refocus, a Next Generation Imaging Program in the U.S. GOM

    TGS announced today the Declaration Refocus next generation M-WAZ imaging program in Mississippi Canyon in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The new, high-end re-imaging workflow is designed to provide enhanced imaging and greater illumination of prospectivity in the area. The program comprises data covering more than 380 Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) blocks (~8,860 km2) from orthogonal 3D WAZ programs previously acquired by TGS using WesternGeco Q-Marine and CGG StagSeis seismic systems between 2010 and 2015.  Full product delivery of Declaration Refocus is expected at the end of 2020, wh...

    TGS & PGS Complete Imaging & Release Final Data for 2020 Eastern Newfoundland Licensing Round in Canada

    TGS, a leading provider of multi-client geoscience data for exploration & production (E&P) companies, today announced, in partnership with PGS,  the release of final 3D seismic data results offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, ahead of the C-NLOPB announcement of parcels and the forthcoming licensing round.  The fully merged and migrated Tablelands and North Tablelands 3D datasets cover approximately 12,500 square kilometers in the eastern part of Orphan Basin. The uplift in image quality provided by these datasets will enable E&P companies to fully evaluate this acreage ahead of the scheduled ...
