TGS has commenced expansion of a 2D multi-client survey in Northeast Greenland.
The survey, NEG13, will enable customers to prepare for the announced Greenland Licensing Round in 2013/2014. Due to favorable ice conditions, TGS expects to acquire 4,200 km of 2D multi-client seismic data. This new data will provide companies with dense data coverage over the licensing area and will be a significant addition to TGS’ already robust data library in the area.
The seismic data is being acquired by the M/V Akademik Shatskiy supported by the ice breaker M/V Viking Balder. A helicopter is being utilized for ice density monitoring. Data processing will be performed by TGS and data will be available to clients in Q1 2014.
