TGS announces new multi-client 3D-3C programme in Canada

Oilfield Technology,

Arcis Seismic Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TGS, has announced three new 3D-3C multi-client surveys covering 580 km2. The surveys, collectively titled Kaybob-Bigstone 3D, are located in West Central Alberta near Fox Creek and will expand TGS' existing coverage along the Duvernay fairway.

Aim to develop greater reservoir understanding

The programme is designed to assist in the evaluation and development of multiple zones from the Cretaceous to Devonian, including emerging plays such as the Duvernay and Montney, along with established producing zones including Swan Hills, Gething, Notikewin and Dunvegan.

By using multi-component acquisition and including reservoir characterisation deliverables, this data will help to develop greater reservoir understanding and will provide industry with new scientific information to support exploration activities.

Processing will be performed by Arcis Seismic Solutions with initial data available to clients in Q2, 2015.

This project is supported by industry funding.
