ASKER/OSLO, NorwayTGS and PGS have started acquisition of the 10,000-sq km (3,861-sq mi) Cape Anguille 3D survey over the Orphan basin offshore Newfoundland.

The long-offset survey, acquired by PGS’ Ramform Titan, will cover existing lease blocks and open acreage. According to TGS, the Orphan basin features potential Cretaceous and Tertiary infill depocenters.

Data to be acquired and processed will include Kirchhoff 3D PSTM volumes, with the Ramform Titan employing PGS’ Geostreamer technology.

In addition, the Ramform Atlas is currently sailing for Canada for another multi-client campaign due to start shortly. PGS plans to keep the Ramform Atlas in Canadian waters until mid-September.

Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS, said: “The Cape Anguille 3D survey will be instrumental in assessing potential prospects that have initially been identified from our comprehensive 2D library in the region.

Leads have been identified from seismic and work supported by amplitude variations…This data will enable our clients to provide improved geophysical and geological insights to de-risk their exploration activities and prepare for upcoming licensing rounds.”
