TGS expands NWAAM library

April 4, 2017

TGS has expanded its North-West African Atlantic Margin (NWAAM) multi-client library in the MSGBC Basin with plans to acquire more than 11,000km of long-offset broadband 2D seismic data together with magnetic and gravity data, in Senegal and Gambia.

This expansion is being undertaken in cooperation with Petrosen in Senegal and the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in Gambia. The investment is being undertaken together with PGS and GeoPartners. Acquisition of this further phase of NWAAM2017 has commenced and continues seamlessly from Phase 1. The NWAAM2017 seismic survey has been designed to infill, extend and complement the TGS NWAAM2012 2D survey which helped with recent commercial discoveries in the MSGBC basin. A 12km deep-tow streamer will enable the recording of high quality broadband 2D seismic data, which will image the pre-rift, syn-rift and post-rift plays evident in this basin.

This survey is supported by industry funding and is being undertaken with the seismic vessel, BGP Dong Fang Kan Tan 1.
