OSLO, Norway — TGS has signed a collaboration agreement with SLB, under which the two companies will gain access to each other’s US Gulf of Mexico (GoM) data for sparse OBN acquisition and processing.
The combined database, covering all prospective areas of the US GoM, will allow the companies to jointly pursue multi-year acquisition campaigns over producing and exploration acreage.
TGS made the announcement during its Capital Markets Day presentation in Oslo. Other highlights include:
- A multi-year vessel agreement with COSL giving TGS access to modern 2D, 3D and source vessel capacity at stable costs.
- Pre-funding secured for a new multiclient 3D seismic survey over an emerging basin in West Africa. The program, due to start in the second quarter, will be the first 3D project under the arrangement with COSL.
- An extension to fourth-quarter 2023 for a proprietary OBN campaign in South America.
- Following a first multiclient wind measurement campaign in the New York Bight, TGS will deploy four further LiDAR buoys in the next few weeks, all in lease areas off the US East Coast, and supported by industry funding.
