TGS begins 3D seismic shoot off Benin

TGS09 December 2013, News Wires – Norwegian seismic contractor TGS has begun acquiring 2022 square kilometres of multi-client 3D seismic data off Benin.

TGS chief executive Stein Ove Isaksen said the new data would “build upon current subsurface knowledge and provide improved imaging of deep Cretaceous and Tertiary strata”.

The survey vessel BGP Prospector is acquiring the data using a ten-streamer configuration, with final data to be available in the third quarter of next year from the industry funding supported survey.

The Asker-headquartered contractor previously gathered 4000 square kilometres of 3D data off Benin in a survey begun in December 2010.
