The joint venture between offshore survey service providers TGS and PGS has secured the Torngat 3D multi-client project in Offshore East Canada.
The project is expected to commence in late July 2019 and will utilise PGS survey vessel Ramform Titan.
The Torngat 3D survey sits within Labrador Sea’s southern sedimentary basins where frontier exploration has already successfully identified hydrocarbons, such as in the nearby Hopedale and Snorri discoveries. Torngat 3D will be the first 3D seismic survey to be acquired offshore Labrador.
“The successful joint venture between TGS and PGS has consistently provided the industry with the highest quality data in advance of scheduled licensing rounds. The Torngat 3D survey will be instrumental in assessing several amplitude variations (AVO) supported leads that were initially evaluated with our comprehensive 2D library in this region. Our combined seismic, well log and interpretation datasets provide the industry with invaluable subsurface insight. This is critical to help identify potential source rocks, structural and stratigraphic traps and reservoirs, allowing our clients to de-risk their exploration activities and prepare them for upcoming licensing rounds,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS.
