Norway's TGS is to perform its first multi-client 3D survey offshore Eastern Canada in partnership with PGS.

The program, which follows hot on the heels of two recently announced 2D multi-client programs due to start offshore Eastern Canada, starting this summer, will seek to acquire about 6000sq km of seismic data using PGS' GeoStreamer technology in two areas; Eastern Newfoundland Orphan Basin and South Labrador.

Data acquisition will start during the summer season 2015. Pre-processing of the initial GeoStreamer signal will be performed by PGS following which TGS will perform data processing with final data available to clients mid-2016.

"TGS is excited to announce its first 3D project in this region, building upon our extensive knowledge derived from the multi-year 2D programs, acquired in partnership with PGS. This project will provide valuable data to exploration companies to further de-risk prospects in the Areas of Interest previously released by Canada's Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board," commented Katja Akentieva, Senior VP Western Hemisphere, TGS. This project is supported by industry funding.

Last month, TGS said it is to acquire up to 30,000km of seismic data through two new multi-client 2D surveys offshore Eastern Canada, also in partnership with PGS.
