TGS, Magseis collaborating on offshore wind and CCS tech projects

TGS and Magseis Renewables are collaborating on two new technology pilot projects for carbon capture and storage (CCS) and offshore wind.


The first project will use high-resolution 3D seismic acquisition in Norway at a carbon storage area to demonstrate technology for detailed imaging of the full section from the seabed to the target storage reservoir.

The second project will utilize ultra-high-resolution 3D seismic acquisition in Denmark over a wind farm with known near seabed challenges to demonstrate applying a high-frequency source coupled with TGS’ data processing technologies.

Both tests will combine TGS’ proprietary imaging software and Magseis Fairfield’s XHR acquisition configurations to demonstrate geophysical solutions that deliver the resolution needed at the cost level indicated by offshore wind and CCS players.

“We look forward to working together with TGS on these key projects that will highlight the value of high resolution seismic for CCS and offshore wind market. We believe combining our XHR technology with TGS’ imaging solutions will result in superior data,” says Magseis Renewables Director, Tone Trudeng.

The acquisition will be completed before the end of Q3 with final data available for viewing and workshops before the end of the year.
