ASKER, NORWAY -- TGS is preparing another season of long-offset data acquisition offshore northwest Europe in collaboration with Fugro.

The campaign will involve compiling around 15,000 km (9,320 mi) of data for the North Sea Renaissance (NSR) survey in Holland, Norway, and UK; 10,000 km (6,214 mi) for the Mid-Norway Regional (MNR) survey in the Norwegian Sea; and around 15,000 km for the Norwegian Barents Sea Regional (NBR) survey in the Barents Sea.

TGS will dedicate the Bergen Surveyor and Northern Genesis vessels to the NSR 2D acquisition project this summer, with the data processed at TGS' imaging center in Bedford, England. Fugro will also contribute two vessels, Geo Arctic and Akademik Lazarev, to acquire the MNR and NBR data, respectively. Fugro will also process the data from these two projects.

Following the 2010 acquisition program, TGS' total long-offset grid on the Norwegian continental shelf will increases to around 260,000 km of 2D seismic. Data from all three surveys should be available this fall.
