TGS Canada Corp (formerly Arcis Seismic Solutions Corp) is a wholly owned subsidiary of TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company based in in Calgary, Alberta Canada.

Founded in 1996, TGS Canada continues to provide premier seismic solutions including seismic data processing, reservoir analysis, advanced imaging, multi-client surveys, geotechnical services, seismic acquisition services and access to an extensive 2D and 3D seismic data library. Offers one of the most current 2D and 3D seismic data libraries for the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, including Northeast British Columbia, TGS Canada reduces the risks associated with drilling and lowering finding and development costs.


Historically is one of the most prominent hydrocarbon basins in North America due to its stacked play potential, an appetite for technology innovation and well-established infrastructure. Alberta continues to provide opportunities for new seismic data acquisition methodologies, new exploratory drilling, and enhanced field development. TGS has acquired data across the region, providing extensive 3D coverage over emerging plays such as the Duvernay and Montney, along with established producing zones including the Cardium, Spirit River and Swan Hills groups.

British Columbia

The Lower Triassic Montney Formation of North Eastern British Columbia, located in the Dawson Creek area just south of Horn River shale, has emerged as one of North America’s premiere unconventional gas plays. TGS’ recent Dawson 3D investments cover approximately 428 km2 expanding upon our adjacent surveys and offering clients over (2000 km2) contiguous, modern data sets in this prolific unconventional resource.

TGS’ data coverage across Southeastern Saskatchewan, provides optimal imaging for prospective zones in the Cretaceous, Mississippian, Devonian and Ordovician plays and covers an underexplored area within a high potential geologic fairway. There is huge potential for new discoveries of Bakken oil in the underexplored hinterlands of Southeastern Saskatchewan, particularly with the increased drilling that is currently taking place for deeper targets, and the continued application of horizontal drilling and completion technology.
