ASKER, Norway -- The MV Polarcus Nadia has begun acquisition of a 5,000-sq km (1,931-sq mi) 3D survey covering blocks 8 and 9, offshore Liberia. TGS-NOPEC will apply advanced pre-stack time and pre-stack depth imaging techniques to create the final subsurface image.

The TGS African data library includes a series of 2D and 3D seismic projects covering the Africa Transform Margin. Upon completion of this latest project, the company will have more than 30,000 km (18,641 mi) of 2D and 18,000 sq km (6,950 sq mi) 3D seismic covering the emerging exploration play in West Africa.

The survey is scheduled for completion in Q2 2010.
