HOUSTON – TGS has begun a 3D multi-client, wide-azimuth seismic survey over 3,500 sq km (1,351 sq mi) in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Independence WAZ 3D is part of TGS’s Constitution group of surveys in the GoM that will cover 27,622 sq km (10,665 sq mi) of deepwater.
The new seismic data is being acquired by a four-vessel WAZ fleet. The data will be processed by TGS and preliminary products will be available to participating companies in 4Q 2012, with a final processed product expected in 2013.
This survey, along with the other WAZ surveys within TGS' Constitution group, will help provide our clients with a clearer image of the geologically complex substructure in the prolific Mississippi Canyon region. Industry support of the new survey indicates increasing interest to explore in the region," commented Rod Starr, Senior VP Western Hemisphere for TGS.
