Most recently, they acquired over 9,900 sq km (3,822 sq mi) for the Cape Anguille 3D project. A fast-track volume should be available before the end of the year, with the final volume set to be delivered in 1Q 2022.
Clients can use the results to assess potential prospects identified from the region’s existing 2D library, ahead of the lease round for the area scheduled for November 2022.
Another survey was Lewis Hills 3D Phase 2, designed to provide a contiguous 3D tie from the Northern Orphan basin to the Jeanne d’Arc basin.
Finally, Jeanne d’Arc 3D Phase 2 should provide fresh insights into the basin’s geophysical and geological characteristics. It follows JDA Phase 1, acquired in 2019.
Rune Olav Pedersen, president and CEO at PGS, said: “The new datasets expand our 3D multi-client coverage for this region to 80,000 sq km [30,888 sq mi] and will help our clients to further de-risk prospects and plays offshore Canada.”
