July 27, 2018; Oslo, Norway - PGS and TGS announce the commencement of a new 3D MultiClient project in East Canada. The Lewis Hills 3D GeoStreamer® survey will cover approximately 3 400 sq. km in an active Newfoundland area of the Flemish Pass Basin. Data will be acquired using the Ramform Sterling. As previously announced, this vessel will also acquire approximately 2 700 sq. km of additional data on the 2017 Harbour Deep and Cape Broyle 3D survey outlines. Acquisition is expected to complete in late Q3 to early Q4 2018.
Following this eighth consecutive season of data acquisition offshore East Canada, the jointly-owned library will have more than 175 000 sq. km of 2D GeoStreamer data and approximately 43 000 sq. km of 3D GeoStreamer data. An expansive well log library is also available in the region, along with advanced MultiClient interpretation products that will improve play, trend and prospect delineation.
Pre-processing of the initial GeoStreamer signal will be performed by PGS onboard the Ramform Sterling, following which TGS will perform data processing using its Clari-Fi(TM) broadband technology. Fast-track data will be available in Q1 2019 with final data in Q2 2019. The survey area will be seamlessly merged with the southern border of the Long Range 3D project acquired in 2017.
This project is supported by industry funding.
