TGS announces 2D survey in U.S. Gulf of Mexico

6/08/2014 by


TGS announces acquisition of Snipe Phase 52, a new long-offset 2D multi-client survey in the ultra-deep water, U.S. Central Gulf of Mexico. The survey will include 12,000 km of data, which supplements TGS' existing library in the region and will provide critical well ties to a number of recent discoveries.

"The new project will provide long-offset, high resolution data required to image potential reservoirs in the lower Tertiary and deeper, as our understanding of the basin and depositional processes continues to evolve," commented Rod Starr, SVP Western Hemisphere for TGS.  "The Snipe Phase 52 program will extend to the U.S.-Mexico international boundary and will complement TGS' previously announced plans to acquire 2D data in the southern Gulf of Mexico waters, pending permits from the Mexican authorities."

The seismic data will be acquired by the M/V Osprey Explorer towing 12,000 meter cable length. The project will commence in Q3 of this year and final data will be available to clients in Q4 2015.

The survey is supported by industry funding.

TGS provides multi-client geoscience data to oil and gas Exploration and Production companies worldwide. In addition to extensive global geophysical and geological data libraries that include multi-client seismic data, magnetic and gravity data, digital well logs, production data and directional surveys, TGS also offers advanced processing and imaging services, interpretation products, permanent reservoir monitoring and data integration solutions.
