HOUSTON -- On July 22, the GGS-Atlantic began acquisition of Spectrum's Big Wave Phase 2 multi-client seismic survey in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Phase 2 of the program comprises 14,000 km (8,699 mi) long offset seismic data and includes a 2,000-km (1,243-mi) well tie survey to the east of the main study area. This new survey compliments the previously acquired data sets and will expand Spectrum's coverage in the eastern GoM to over 52,000 km (32,311 mi).

Acquisition is expected to last until December. Seismic data processing will be undertaken by Spectrum's facility in Houston, where a sequence including both pre-stack time and pre-stack depth migration will be applied.
