ASKER, NorwayTGS and PGS have committed to the Jeanne d’Arc High Density 3D (HD3D) multi-client survey offshore Newfoundland.

The program, which PGS’ Ramform Atlas has started, will cover around 5,000 sq km (1,930 sq mi) over multiple exploration licenses, significant discovery licenses, and parts of the open acreage included to be included in the November 2019 bid round.

PGS will deploy its high-resolution Geostreamer technology. Acquisition is expected to finish in late summer.

Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS, said: “This survey will provide our clients with the first comprehensive, high-resolution 3D dataset within the mature Jeanne d’Arc basin. This highly productive and prospective area has long been a priority to our customers…”

The HD3D survey will be close to producing offshore fields such as Hibernia, Terra Nova, White Rose, North Amethyst, and Hebron.

Following this ninth consecutive season of data acquisition offshore eastern Canada, the jointly-owned TGS/PGS library will have more than 189,000 km (117,439 mi) of 2D GeoStreamer data and about 56,000 sq km (21,622 sq mi) of 3D GeoStreamer data.

The partners also offer a well log library for the region.
