TGS gets go-ahead for GoM Gigante seismic survey
TGS has received a permit from Mexico’s Comisión Nacional de Hidrocarburos to conduct a 181,500-km (112,779-mi) regional 2D seismic survey in the Gulf of Mexico.
TGS will commence acquisition of the “Gigante” survey in 2Q 2015.
Data processing will be performed by TGS with initial fasttrack results in 3Q 2015. Gigante will also include gravity and magnetic data with a regional seismic structural interpretation.
This survey will use four Seabird vessels to acquire a regional grid of 2D multi-client seismic with 12,000 m (39,370 ft) offsets. Gigante will cover a large sector offshoreMexico, including the Perdido fold belt and Campeche Bay. Line ties will be made in to previously acquired US GoM grids.
