The two companies said on Thursday that the project will cover approximately 5,000 square kilometers and encompasses multiple exploration licenses, significant discovery licenses and sections of the open acreage included in the November 2019 bid round.

The Ramform Atlas seismic vessel is performing the acquisition, utilizing the GeoStreamer technology. The data acquisition has started and is expected to complete in late 3Q 2019.

The Jeanne d’Arc HD3D survey borders Newfoundland’s prominent producing fields such as Hibernia, Terra Nova, White Rose, North Amethyst, and Hebron.

Following this ninth consecutive season of data acquisition in offshore East Canada, the jointly-owned library will have more than 189,000 line kilometers of 2D GeoStreamer data and approximately 56,000 square kilometers of 3D GeoStreamer data.

This project is supported by industry funding.

This is not the first time the two firms are teaming up in Canada. PGS and TGS back in April partnered up to conduct two multi-client seismic surveys the North Tablelands 3D and the Southeast Grand Banks 2019 2D in the Atlantic Ocean offshore Canada.
