They plan to acquire 947 sq km (366 sq mi) of additional 3D data, tying into the existing 2,811-sq km (1,085-sq mi) volume to form one contiguous dataset.
The area to be covered is between the prospective Orphan basin, with recent discoveries in the Flemish Pass and connecting farther south to the Jeanne d’Arc basin.
An expansive well log library is also available in the region, along with advanced multi-client interpretation products that will improve play, trend, and prospect delineation.
David Hajovsky, executive vice president of Western Hemisphere at TGS, said Phase 2’s additional contiguous 3D data coverage should “enhance the geological understanding in the region, allowing clients to de-risk their exploration activities and investments.”
Neil Paddy, vice president North America at PGS, added: “GeoStreamer imaging technology supports the ongoing exploration drilling programs and this project will be key in enhancing understanding of the petroleum systems at play.”
Final processed stacks should be made available by 3Q 2022.
