ASKER, Norway – TGS has started a 1,000 km (621 mi) multi-client 2D survey in northeast Greenland in partnership with Fugro.
The seismic data is being acquired by the M/V Akademik Shatskiy supported by the ice breaker M/V Fennicia. The survey is scheduled to be complete during 4Q 2011. Data processing will be performed by TGS and data will be available to clients during 1Q 2012.
This survey will enable customers to prepare for the announced Greenland Licensing Round in 2012/2013 and will significantly add to a data set that TGS has been growing since 2008 in this promising region.
After this year's data acquisition, TGS will be able to offer approximately 4,500 km (2,796 mi) of new multi-client 2D data, a large volume of reprocessed multi-client 2D data and full coverage of aeromagnetic/gravity data over the basins that are to be included in the planned licensing round.
