HOUSTON– Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) plans to acquire the TRITON GeoStreamer Full Azimuth survey to address the complex imaging problems in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.
This survey will cover 350 OCS blocks, involving 8,100 sq km (3,127 sq mi), in the Garden Banks and Keathley Canyon areas of the Gulf of Mexico. Within the limits of this survey are BP's subsalt Tiber discovery in Keathley Canyon 102 and several wildcat wells, including BP's Gila well in Keathley Canyon 93 and Chevron's Oceanographer well in Garden Banks 973. The new survey will image the extent of the Wilcox play to the north of Tiber and to the west of Cobalt's North Platte discovery in Garden Banks 959.
The TRITON survey will use five vessels in the Orion configuration to acquire high-fold, long-offset, dual-sensor, full-azimuth data.
