TGS Wraps Up Gigante 2D Seismic Shoot

TGS has completed acquisition of its 186,000 kilometer Gigante seismic survey in Mexico. 

Acquisition of this survey began in June 2015 with five seismic vessels contracted to acquire the 2D seismic data. Five of SeaBird vessels were contracted to acquire the survey, namely Aquila Explorer, Osprey Explorer, Hawk Explorer and Northern Explorer along with one more vessel.

Processing of the Gigante survey is ongoing with fast track PSTM and preliminary PSDM products available in advance of the scheduled licensing rounds, TGS informed.

TGS expects to complete the Gigante multibeam bathymetry coverage in early October and the seafloor coring in December.

“This is a significant milestone for TGS, representing the culmination of many years of planning, preparation and operational excellence from our team. Gigante is the single largest 2D seismic survey ever acquired by TGS and we are delighted by our clients’ response to the data quality and complementary products,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO, TGS.

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