TGS Completes 25 Pct of Gigante Seismic Program

TGS has acquired 46,500 kilometers (25%) of the 186,000 km 2D seismic project, Gigante in the Gulf of Mexico.

The survey is being acquired with four Seabird vessels and the fifth vessel, M/V Aquila, will join the survey in early November.

Gigante covers the entire deep water area of the offshore sector of Mexico and ties into TGS seismic data acquired in the US Gulf of Mexico. Completion of the survey is expected in the second quarter of 2016. Delivery of the fast track products began in September this year, TGS informed.

TGS has received the environmental impact resolution from the Mexican Authorities for its multibeam survey and will shortly start acquisition in Mexico. This survey ties into the recently completed multibeam program in the US Gulf of Mexico. Completion of the Gigante multibeam project is expected in the fourth quarter of 2016.

“TGS’ unique and comprehensive geoscience package will be an essential tool for E&P companies in their drive for hydrocarbon exploration and development success in offshore Mexico,” said Katja Akentieva, Sr. Vice President, Western Hemisphere, TGS.

These surveys are supported by industry funding.
