ASKER, Norway – TGS has started work on a new 3D multi-client survey covering 2,500 sq km (965 sq mi) in the west of Shetland region.

This will be the first 3D data over the Brendan basin in Quad 219, according to Stein Ove Isaksen, senior vice president Eastern Hemisphere.

The M/V Polarcus Naila will acquire the broadband seismic by towing 12 streamers at 6,000 m (19,685 ft) cable length. TGS will process the data using its proprietary broadband technology, Clari-Fi, and aims to make initial results available to clients during the fall.
