TGS announces further expansion of North-West African Atlantic Margin 2D seismic survey
ASKER, Norway, 2017-04-04 07:50 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
TGS announces a further expansion of its NWAAM multi-client library in the MSGBC Basin with plans to acquire more than 11,000 km of long-offset broadband 2D seismic data together with magnetic and gravity data, in Senegal and Gambia. This expansion is being undertaken in cooperation with Petrosen in Senegal and the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in Gambia. The investment is being undertaken together with PGS and GeoPartners. Acquisition of this further phase of NWAAM 2017 has commenced and continues seamlessly from Phase 1. The NWAAM 2017 seismic survey has been designed to infill, extend and complement the TGS NWAAM 2012 2D survey which helped with recent commercial discoveries in the MSGBC basin. A 12 km deep-tow streamer will enable the recording of high quality broadband 2D seismic data, which will image the pre-rift, syn-rift and post-rift plays evident in this basin.
"This further expansion of our NWAAM data library confirms TGS' continued commitment to the leading frontier basin in Africa. We are excited to be part of the ongoing exploration and upcoming development of this basin,” commented Kristian Johansen, CEO for TGS.
This survey is supported by industry funding and is being undertaken with the seismic vessel, BGP Dong Fang Kan Tan 1.
