PGS and TGS Announce Torngat 3D Survey Offshore East Canada

May 17, 2019: Oslo, Norway, PGS and TGS announce the Torngat 3D MultiClient project in Offshore East Canada.

Torngat 3D will cover approximately 3,287 square kilometers and encompasses sections of the open acreage included in the Labrador South November 2021 bid round. PGS' Ramform Titan will perform the acquisition, utilizing GeoStreamer technology.  The project is expected to commence in late July 2019. PGS will process the GeoStreamer data.

The Torngat 3D survey sits within Labrador Sea's southern sedimentary basins where frontier exploration has already successfully identified hydrocarbons, such as in the nearby Hopedale and Snorri discoveries. Torngat 3D will be the first 3D seismic survey to be acquired offshore Labrador. 

Following this ninth consecutive season of data acquisition in offshore East Canada, the jointly owned library will have approximately 52,000 square kilometers of 3D GeoStreamer data and more than 189,000 line kilometers of 2D GeoStreamer data.

This project is supported by industry funding.
