PERTH, Australia -- A 2D seismic acquisition program is under way by TGS offshore West Papua, Indonesia. The program adds 2,240 km (1,392 mi) of new 2D data to help evaluate the petroleum potential south of the Salawati basin, which holds an estimated total cumulative oil production of more than 300 MMbbl, TGS says.

Upon the completion of the program, anticipated in May, TGS’s Indonesia library will include 100,000 km (62,137 mi) of 2D seismic; 400,000 km (248,548 mi) of multi-beam bathymetric data; and 1,200 core samples covering over 1 million sq km (386,102 sq mi) of Indonesia's deepwater basins.
