Polarcus to Conduct Seismic Shoot for TGS in GoM

TGS has awarded a contract to Polarcus for the acquisition of Alonso 3D multi-client project in the US Gulf of Mexico.

Alonso 3D is a 6,172 km2 multi-client survey located in the Atwater Valley and Lloyd Ridge protraction areas of the US Gulf of Mexico.

The survey will be conducted using Polarcus’ XArray multiple source acquisition method.

This project will allow TGS to extend coverage from a core area in Mississippi Canyon into a more frontier area that is experiencing renewed interest from E&P companies.

Acquisition is expected to start in February 2018 and will last for three months, Polarcus noted. Data processing will be performed by TGS using its Clari-FiTM broadband technology.

Alonso 3D will expand TGS’ modern 3D coverage in the deep-water Gulf of Mexico. After a period of lower activity levels in the US GoM, this survey helps strengthen our position in an underexplored area that is of interest to our clients, ahead of upcoming lease turnover. The Alonso 3D survey further adds to our GoM library which also includes successful WAZ data programs to the north of this area,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO for TGS.

The survey is supported by industry funding.
