Offshore staff

HOUSTON – TGS-NOPEC (Oslo:TGS) has started its multi-client 3D seismic survey to cover 7,000 sq. km (2,793 sq. mi) in the Central Gulf of Mexico.

The Amerigo 3D survey is in the eastern part of the Central GoM and hits parts of Lloyd Ridge, Desoto Canyon, and Atwater Valley.

The seismic data is being acquired by a Fugro C-class vessel and will be complete 2Q 2013.  Data processing will integrate the data using TGS' adjacent 3D data and apply TGS' newest broadband processing technology, Clari-Fi.  Preliminary data will be available to clients 3Q 2013.The survey is supported by industry funding. 

“This survey enables TGS to leverage our existing adjacent 3D data while utilizing 12,000 m (39,360 ft.) offsets to allow for a deeper image in this attractive play. Industry support of the new survey indicates increasing interest to explore in this region," commented Rod Starr, SVP Western Hemisphere for TGS.
