The offshore project, which will support the country’s current second license round, will combine all available open file and TGS multi-client data across a 50,000 sq km-plus (19,305 sq mi) area with more than 2,500 lines and existing 3D seismic within the planned area.
TGS added that the 2D data, from more than 45 legacy vintages, covers the entire offshore region south of Timor-Leste where the 11 offshore blocks on offer are located.
Final multi-client 2Dcubed data, the company added, should allow interested parties to develop structural and geological models in their pre-study evaluation process using a single conformable 3D volume.
TGS developed 2Dcubed for generating a 3D seismic migration volume from a set of 2D and 3D seismic lines. It is said to employ an advanced, structurally conformable interpolation algorithm to make maximum use of existing 2D multi-vintage and 3D data.
First deliverables for the new project should be issued next month, with final products to follow around September. The bidding window for the round looks set to close during the first half of 2021.
