Offshore staff

ASKER, NorwayTGS has completed acquisition of the second year of a multi-year 2D seismic survey offshore northeast Greenland.

Due to favorable ice conditions and strong operational performance, the company managed to acquire 7,300 km (4,536 mi) of the program by the time operations ended on Oct. 13, 2015, supplementing the 5,400 km (3,355 mi) compiled in 2014.

The remainder of the survey, to be completed this year, totals around 1,800 km (1,118 mi).

Last summer TGS also started two 3D seismic surveys in partnership with PGS offshore Newfoundland. In June, they embarked on a 4,372-sq km (1,688-sq mi) multi-client 3D survey over the Flemish Pass, completing the program in late October.

Final data should be issued this summer.

The duo also acquired 4,800 sq km (1,853 sq mi) of 3D data over another prospective area offshore the province, again completed in October.

Farther north, the partnership acquired three 2D surveys totalling 28,000 km (17,398 mi) off Newfoundland and Labrador using two vessels.
