PGS, TGS and Schlumberger WesternGeco win multi-client survey in Malaysia

Petronas is trying to stimulate investment in offshore exploration and production (E&P) by opening up an area of Malaysian offshore oilfields to multi-client data acquisition for the first time.

A consortium comprising the industry’s three largest multi-client companies, PGS, TGS and Schlumberger WesternGeco, has won the tender to undertake a multi-client seismic programme in offshore Sabah.

“With exploration and drilling progressing into deeper frontier waters, there is potential for new plays in the carbonate and syn-rift section. This large basin will benefit from modern, high-resolution broadband 3D seismic necessary to understand both the existing play concepts and new potential plays,” PGS said today in a statement.

The consortium will use a combination of some of the most technologically advanced survey techniques, including multi-sensor acquisition using marine isometric seismic technology, and advanced broadband 2D acquisition and processing.
