ASKER, Norway – TGS is preparing to start acquisition of a new 3D multi-client survey in the northern North Sea.
This will take in 1,100 sq km (424 sq mi) over the Magnus basin, including the southwest-northeast striking “End of the World” fault.
TGS will also reprocess 6,500 sq km (2,509 sq mi) of 3D seismic data in the same area to form a combined data bank of 7,600 sq km (2,934 sq mi).
M/V Geo Pacific will acquire the new data, towing eight 6,000-m (19,685-ft) streamers, and the work will be completed this summer.
TGS aims to make the processed data available to clients from late 1Q 2012.
