Offshore staff

ASKER, Norway – TGS has started its second 3D seismic survey offshore Benin, West Africa.

According to Stein Ove Isaksen, senior vice president Eastern Hemisphere, data from the 2,022-sq km (780-sq mi) multi-client BR-13 survey “will build upon current subsurface knowledge and provide improved imaging of deep Cretaceous and Tertiary strata.

“Interpretation of this data will lead to better delineation of oil and gas prospects over the acreage surveyed as well as a greater understanding of adjacent areas.”

The 10-streamer BGP Prospector is performing the survey. TGS will handle data processing using its seismic multiple elimination processing technology, TAME.

Final data should be available from 3Q 2014.
