PGS to carry out 3D exploration programme for supermajor offshore Egypt

PGS has been awarded a high-fidelity 3D exploration programme by an unnamed supermajor offshore Egypt.

The survey will be acquired using an Extended Long Offset (ELO) configuration with the Ramform Tethys seismic vessel towing a wide multi-sensor GeoStreamer spread with an additional source vessel located several kilometres ahead. This will enable efficient recording of offsets up to 16 km critical for imaging deeper complex exploration targets. The source vessel will be towing a specially designed low frequency source.

“We are very pleased to be awarded this contract, which secures PGS vessels to operate in Egyptian waters until May 2021, building on an extended campaign for several super majors since July 2020. In a rapidly changing energy market, exploration seismic requires increasingly advanced survey designs, such as the ELO configuration, to generate high quality seismic data in complex geologies,” said Nathan Oliver, EVP Sales & Services of PGS.
