Offshore seismic services provider TGS and Schlumberger have formed a strategic collaboration for multiclient ocean-bottom node projects in the deepwater US Gulf of Mexico.
Under the agreement, TGS and Schlumberger will work together to develop opportunities to co-invest in additional multiclient ocean-bottom node projects in the region.
According to TGS, E&P companies are increasingly looking to ocean-bottom nodes, combined with advanced processing, as the next-generation technology to support both exploration and development activities in the Gulf of Mexico.
“TGS and WesternGeco have a strong track record of investing together, using the latest technology so that our clients can benefit from large-scale, high-quality data in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Both companies are at the forefront of ocean- bottom node technology with Amendment Phase 1 being the world’s first large- scale, multiclient sparse node program. We are working closely with our clients to plan future phases and are excited by the potential growth in exploration and production activity that this could drive in the U.S Gulf of Mexico and beyond,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO, TGS.
