The survey will cover about 3,400 sq km (1,313 sq mi), and data will be acquired using PGS’Ramform Sterling. This project is supported by industry funding.
As previously announced, this vessel will also acquire approximately 2,700 sq km (1,042 sq mi) of additional data on the 2017 Harbour Deep andCape Broyle 3D survey outlines. Acquisition is expected to conclude in late 3Q to early 4Q 2018.
Pre-processing of the initial GeoStreamer signal will be performed by PGS onboard theRamform Sterling, following which TGS will perform data processing using its Clari-Fi broadband technology. Fasttrack data will be available in 1Q 2019 with final data in 2Q 2019.
The survey area will be merged with the southern border of theLong Range 3D project acquired in 2017.
Following this eighth consecutive season of data acquisitionoffshore eastern Canada, the jointly-owned library will have more than 175,000 km (108,740 mi) of 2D GeoStreamer data and approximately 43,000 km (16,602 sq mi) of 3D GeoStreamer data.
