Offshore survey specialists TGS and CGG have partnered up for a survey in the Barents Sea.
The survey will include the highly prospective Castberg area, and cover existing and newly awarded licenses in addition to open acreage with several play models in multiple geological layers.
The acquisition is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2019 with final delivery to clients in the fourth quarter of 2020.
“Greater Castberg will expand the great TGS data coverage in the Barents Sea. The survey sits in the right place of the Barents Sea, and production licenses will start producing from this area in 2022. The area calls for high-technology solutions, and a tailor-made solution for this area is created in close collaboration with the clients and within the jv,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS.
