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.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
