ASKER, NorwayTGS plans to expand its 3D seismic coverage in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

Alonso 3D is a multi-client survey of 6,172 sq km (2,383 sq mi) located in the Atwater Valley and Lloyd Ridge protraction areas of theUS Gulf of Mexico. Multi-level targets exist, from Miocene to Jurassic.

This project, the company claims, allows it to extend coverage from a core area inMississippi Canyon into a more frontier area that is experiencing renewed interest from E&P companies. TGS will acquire new 3D data to provide the higher spatial resolution required to delineate multiple plays at multiple levels.

Acquisition is expected to begin in February 2018. Data processing will be performed by the company using its Clari-FiTM broadband technology.

This survey is supported by industry funding.
