PGS and TGS team up on East Canada project

Offshore survey specialists TGS and Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) have joined together for a new 3D multi-client project in East Canada.

The new survey will cover approximately 8,000km in an active Newfoundland area of the Flemish Pass and Orphan Basins.

Pre-processing of the initial GeoStreamer signal will be performed by PGS’s survey vessel, Ramform Hyperion, and the data acquisition is expected to complete late in the third quarter of this year.

“Tablelands 3D will expand TGS’ data coverage in offshore East Canada where we have a strong track record of success. This project will provide modern, high quality seismic data to an area that is highly relevant for exploration in the prolific Newfoundland basins,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO, TGS.

This week, PGS and TGS also secured a contract for a large 3D survey project in the Barents Sea which is due to be completed in September next year.
