ASKER, Norway – TGS has signed a three-year agreement with China’s BGP to jointly acquire, process, and market 2D and 3D multi-client seismic data offshore Madagascar and East Africa.

The aim is to develop a portfolio of new multi-client projects in the region. Initially the partners will acquire a 2D multi-client 13,135-km (8,162-mi) seismic survey in west Morondava, offshore Madagascar. The new data will extend and infill existing regional 2D multi-client data that TGS acquired in 2001 and 2005.

Additionally, the company has agreed to work with Electromagnetic Geoservices (EMGS) to develop multi-client projects in parts of northwest Europe.

EMGS will gain access to TGS’ 2D seismic data as the basis for planning new 3D controlled-source electromagnetic (CSEM) projects. In return, TGS can access 2D/3D CSEM data to design and acquire new 3D seismic surveys.
