Northwest Africa

Northwest Africa

Northwest Africa has been the shining light of African exploration. That light was cast upon the region through world-class discoveries in Senegal and Mauritania.

TGS offers 2D and 3D seismic in continuous coverage from MSGBC to Liberia, with supporting MBSS geochemistry, and continues to prove a working hydrocarbon system here. 


Explore Region

West Africa Transform

West African Transform

The West African Transform Margin (WATM) stretches from Sierra Leone in the west to Benin in the east.

What was once frontier territory for oil and gas exploration has had some of the most exciting discoveries in recent years.

West African Salt Margins

West Africa

West Africa contains an intriguing mix of mature and frontier areas, presenting many exciting opportunities for significant discoveries.


Explore Region

Southwest Africa

Southwest Africa

TGS holds the largest and most extensive 2D library in Namibia and South Africa with over 97,500 km and is adding to it by tieing recent discoveries to explore analogous plays.
