HOUSTON – WesternGeco has started the second multi-client seismic survey in the Gulf of Mexico using Dual Coil Shooting to acquire full-azimuth, ultra-long offset seismic data from four vessels taking a circular survey path.

Revolution II, in the Green Canyon area of the Gulf, follows the Revolution I project in the western GoM done late last year. Revolution II plans to cover more than 3,200 sq km (1,235 sq mi), says WesternGeco.

WesternGeco also says it will process the data using true-azimuth 3D GSMP (general surface multiple prediction) and anisotropic reverse time migration.
