ASKER, Norway– TGS has started the Erlend Wild West multi-client 3D seismic survey west of Shetland.

This survey will cover a minimum of 1,000 sq km (386 sq mi) and tie into TGS’ existing EW12 3D data. The company will use its Clari-Fi broadband technology to deliver high fidelity imaging of the subsurface.

CEO Kristian Johansen said: “Erlend Wild West 3D will expand TGS’ data coverage, including open acreage and existing discoveries, in thewest of Shetlands region, where high potential prospects have been identified. This project will provide modern, high quality seismic data to an area that is highly relevant for exploration in the newly awarded acreage for the UK 30th Offshore Licensing Round.”
