HOUSTONTGS has commercial authorization from Mexico’s regulator Comisión Nacional de Hidrocarburos (CNH) to process its entire library of more than 30,000 wells drilled throughout the Mexican sector.

It gives the company the right to process and deliver well data products to companies exploring offshore and onshoreMexico.

The first phase of processing will focus on exploration and appraisal wells, plus key development wells for bid rounds.

Well data packages can be delivered through the TGS R360 web portal. The subsurface data packages currently available include digitized well Logs in LAS+ format, SmartRasters, and validated well headers, with optional checkshots and Directional Survey Plus, Checkshot Plus, Mud LAS and Lithology LAS.

All products are said to provide full coverage of the wellbore system from surface to total depth, with TGS pledging quality control to ensure all attributes such as depth, direction, height, and elevation meet strict guidelines for accuracy.

The data-sets cover all the country’s offshore and onshore basins including exploration and appraisal wells in thePerdido fold belt and Salina basin, and the Sureste and areas.

“Our Mexican library will help E&P companies to evaluate petroleum potential from deepwater to conventional and unconventional plays onshore, optimizing efforts in pursuing new lease rounds and investment opportunities in this region,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS.
