TGS announces 3D multi-client survey in Gulf of Mexico

Friday, Dec 14, 2012

TGS commences a 3D multi-client survey covering 7,000 km2 in the Central Gulf of Mexico.

The survey, Amerigo 3D, is located in the eastern side of the Central Gulf of Mexico through the Lloyd Ridge, Desoto Canyon and Atwater Valley areas.

"We are pleased to extend our 3D coverage in the Central Gulf of Mexico.  This survey enables TGS to leverage our existing adjacent 3D data while utilizing12,000 meter offsets to allow for a deeper image in this attractive  play.  Industry support of the new survey indicates increasing interest to explore in this region," commented Rod Starr, Senior VP Western Hemisphere for TGS.

The seismic data is being acquired by a Fugro C-class vessel and will be complete Q2 2013.  Data processing will integrate the new Amerigo data with TGS' modern, adjacent 3D data and apply TGS' newest broadband processing technology, Clari-Fi(TM).  Preliminary data will be available to clients Q3 2013.

The survey is supported by industry funding.
