HOUSTON –TGS-Nopec Geophysical Co. and WesternGeco have started acquiring a multi-client, wide-azimuth 3D survey in the Gulf of Mexico.

The mcWAZ Freedom Phase survey is to cover 650 outer continental shelf blocks in Mississippi Canyon and Atwater Valley.

The mcWAZ program will use WesternGeco Q-Technology and onboard Wave Equation depth migration to provide a quick-look migrated data volume. TGS recently created an anisotropic velocity model calibrated to over 280 check shot surveys in and around the program area. This model will be utilized in the onboard quick-look product.
