TGS Hits 75 Pct Mark on Gigante Survey in GoM

TGS has acquired approximately 141,000 kilometers (75%) of the planned 186,000 kilometers of the Gigante 2D seismic project in Gulf of Mexico. 

Gigante covers the entire offshore sector of Mexico and ties into TGS’ regional 2D seismic grid covering the entire US Gulf of Mexico.

Delivery of fast track pre-stack time data is ongoing with 103,380 kilometers available and approximately 64,000 kilometers of preliminary pre-stack depth available for the deep water bid round scheduled for December 5, 2016, TGS informed.

In addition, acquisition of multibeam data is 30% complete with preliminary results available. This data is used to identify hydrocarbon seeps on the seafloor and will direct TGS’ seafloor coring operations which began January 22. Coring in the Perdido area is now 100% complete.

Seafloor core samples will be analyzed to determine hydrocarbon grade and will be combined with TGS’ other geoscience data as part of a comprehensive interpretative study of the region.

The 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.
