Greenland: TGS shooting 2D in northeastern offshore

TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co. has begun expansion of a multiclient 2D seismic survey offshore Northeast Greenland in advance of the 2013-14 license round and expects to acquire 4,200 km of data due to favorable ice conditions.

The new data will provide companies with dense data coverage over the license area, the company said.

The M/V Viking Balder icebreaker will accompany the M/V Akademik Shatskiy seismic vessel, and a helicopter is being used for ice density monitoring. TGS will process the data, which will be available in the first quarter of 2014.
