TGS Gets CNH Nod for Mexico Well Data Delivery

TGS has obtained commercial authorization from the Mexican regulator, Comisión Nacional de Hidrocarburos (CNH), to process its entire library of more than 30,000 wells in Mexico.  

This award grants TGS the right to process and deliver well data products to companies exploring in offshore and onshore Mexico.

The first phase of processing is focused on all onshore and offshore exploration and appraisal wells, plus key development wells for bid rounds, TGS said.

All data products come with full coverage of the wellbore system from surface to total depth.  TGS will perform quality control to ensure all attributes such as depth, direction, height, and elevation meet the most stringent guidelines for accuracy.

The packages provide key coverage of all offshore and onshore basins including exploration and appraisal wells in Perdido Fold Belt and Salina basin with additional focus on areas such as Sureste and Veracruz.

The packages also focus on Tampico-Misantla, with dense coverage across Chicontepec, and deep data for Agua Nueva and Pimienta unconventionals extending through the Burgos Sabrina Basins.

Processing has already started with first delivery expected in February 2018.

With this combination of well data packages, comprising over 30,000 exploration, appraisal and critical wells from across Mexico, alongside our existing Gigante regional offshore 2D seismic survey and our recently reprocessed onshore Mexico 2D seismic dataset, TGS is optimally positioned to provide our clients with a comprehensive, high quality Mexican database.  Our Mexican library will help E&P companies to evaluate petroleum potential from deep water to conventional and unconventional plays onshore, optimizing efforts in pursuing new lease rounds and investment opportunities in this region,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO for TGS.
