TGS, Schlumberger Start Revolution XII and XIII Surveys in Gulf of Mexico
TGS and Schlumberger have started the dual coil shooting multivessel full-azimuth acquisition Revolution XII and XIII surveys in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
The surveys will cover approximately 7,150 km2 (306 blocks) in the Green Canyon, Atwater Valley and Ewing Bank protraction areas of the Central Gulf of Mexico, TGS informed.
The Revolution Xll and XIII surveys will be acquired using the Schlumberger WesternGeco Q-Marine point-receiver marine seismic system combined with the multivessel, dual coil shooting acquisition technique, which will provide broadband, long-offset, full-azimuth data.
Acquisition is expected to complete in late Q1 2017 with final processed data available in early 2018.
“TGS is excited to return to the U.S. Gulf of Mexico to continue its successful collaboration with WesternGeco. The Revolution XII and XIII surveys benefit from the latest advances in seismic technology and will provide the E&P industry with critical information to support exploration and drilling activity in a region that is expected to remain a priority for our customers,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO, TGS.
This project is supported by industry funding.
