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.
