TGS has completed the acquisition of its latest 3D survey offshore Senegal, SN-UDO-19.

This latest stand-alone survey is located in northern Senegal and follows a further recently completed survey, SS-UDO-19, in the south of the country. Fast track data will be available during 2Q20. The full dataset will be available by 4Q20.

Upon completion of SN-UDO-19, the acquisition vessel, BGP Prospector, steamed 200 km north to begin a further survey today to acquire 2024 km2 of 3D seismic data in northern Senegal. Once again in partnership with GeoPartners and Petrosen, the 3D survey, OUP-NORD-20, will cover a block that is currently open and included in the present licence round launched in Dakar on 31 January.

The data being acquired will illuminate deepwater fan systems that have already proved effective inboard of the 3D with the Yakaar and Tortue discoveries and will be key to supporting the licensing round across this acreage.

Kristian Johansen, CEO at TGS, commented: “It is great to see that the new data being acquired will be used to unlock the as-yet unexplored deepwater potential of this emerging world-class hydrocarbon basin. We are proud to be bringing this data to our clients in order to enable future discoveries.”
