TGS has announced the start of Sophies Resolve Refocus 3D, an OBC and NAZ imaging programme in the US Gulf of Mexico.

The programme includes approximately 6175 km2 of reprocessed 3D seismic data to provide a regional product helping E&Ps further explore new and existing plays in this area. Sophies Resolve Refocus 3D marks the next phase of imaging over the mature, hydrocarbon-producing areas of South Timbalier, Grand Isle and Ewing Bank. By applying advanced imaging techniques utilising its proprietary Dynamic Matching FWI imaging technology in this highly successful region, TGS will further illuminate the key subsurface structures and provide new insight into the prospectivity within the deeper sub-salt section.

Kristian Johansen, CEO at TGS, commented: “The Gulf of Mexico remains a top priority for TGS. By utilising the latest imaging techniques, this programme provides our customers with the most comprehensive view of the subsurface so they can make the best decisions about their investments – underpinning our commitments to customer service and sustainable operations. Having the best possible understanding of the subsurface also allows TGS to optimise future acquisition investments.”

The project commenced in 2Q21, with final data available in 3Q22.
