TGS has commenced acquisition of a 3D multi-client survey covering 1,544 square miles (4,000 square kilometers) in the Northern North Sea near the southern More Basin.
This survey, EOTW12, builds on the previously announced Erlend Basin multi-client 3D survey and ties with TGS' existing multi-client 3D database in the Northern North Sea (End of the World). Upon completion, EOTW12 will form part of a 5,019 square miles (13,000 square kilometers) contiguous 3D volume in this region. The survey will de-risk multiple play types spanning Cretaceous to Triassic age reservoirs and is adjacent to a current exploration well targeting the Albert prospect.
The seismic data is being acquired by the M/V Polarcus Amani and M/V Polarcus Adira and will be completed 3Q 2012. Data processing will be performed by TGS and be available to clients 2Q 2013.
