HOUSTON– PGS says it recently completed the Crystal II Survey in western Gulf of Mexico waters and that the data quality is good. The survey covered 485 deepwater OCS block over 11,300 sq km (4,363 sq mi).

PGS says its hyperBeam velocity model and TTI RTM imaging will be applied to the data with results coming later this year.

"Initial data quality is extremely promising and we believe that the program will deliver on its promise of a step-change in imaging quality necessary to unlock the Miocene and Lower Paleogene sub-salt potential in the East Breaks area," says Nathan Oliver regional president MultiClient NSA.
