TGS has commenced acquisition of a new 3D multi-client survey in the West of Shetland region.

The survey will cover 2500 km2 and will tie into TGS' existing 3D library in the region, bringing the total volume of recent TGS 3D in the area to over 17,500 km2.


"TGS is pleased to announce the industry's first 3D data over the Brendan Basin in UKCS Quad 219. This confirms our strong presence in the West of Shetland region," commented Stein Ove Isaksen, Senior VP Eastern Hemisphere for TGS.

The broadband seismic data will be acquired by the M/V Polarcus Naila towing 12 streamers at 6000 m cable length. Data processing will be performed by TGS using its proven proprietary broadband technology, Clari-FiTM. Initial data will be available to clients in Q4 2014.
