Africa: Passive margin spec seismic under way

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, June 23
– TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co. and Dolphin Geophysical Ltd. will jointly shoot, process, and market multiclient 2D seismic data off Northwest Africa.

The survey will total 25,000 km of long offset seismic data off multiple countries in a program designed based on the partnership’s extensive geologic knowledge of the area. Some 10,000 km of seismic data have been acquired to date using the M/V Artemis Atlantic, and acquisition will continue into the second half of 2011.

The data will improve the understanding of highly prospective areas along the Northwest African passive margin and add to TGS’s existing and continuous multiclient 2D seismic library along the African margin.

TGS will process and make certain data available starting in late 2011, with the full program completed in 2012.
