ASKER, Norway -- TGS and Fugro have begun the seventh season of the Renaissance 2D seismic program. This regional grid of long offset and long record seismic data covers the North Sea, mid-Norway, and the Barents Seas.
The 2009 seismic acquisition plan includes 40,000 km (24,855 mi) of data that will be located in all three of the survey areas. A minimum of five seismic vessels will be used for the survey, and the processed data will be available to industry at the end of the year. Upon completion of the 2009 acquisition plan, the TGS data library will contain a total of approximately 220,000 km (137,944 mi) of regional Renaissance data.
