ASKER, Norway -- TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co., in cooperation with WesternGeco, has completed the Freedom Wide Azimuth (WAZ) 3D seismic project in the Gulf of Mexico. The project covers over 16,600 sq km (6,409 sq mi) in the Mississippi Canyon and Atwater Valley.

The companies are delivering fast track products to customers. Additional imaging work will continue throughout 2010, the companies say.
