Paper Summary

The first regionally extensive long offset 2D seismic program has been acquired in the slope and deepwater regions of the Labrador Sea, offshore Canada. The survey was planned integrating well ties from the shelf, regional gravity data, and newly acquired satellite slick data that suggested the potential for oil prone hydrocarbon systems in the previously unexplored deepwater areas. The early data results from this initial 2011-2012 program (22,000 line km) are encouraging and have resulted in the identification and delineation of new basins, play types, and AVO supported leads.
