TGS starts multi-client 2D survey offshore northwest Alaska
HOUSTON -- TGS has commenced acquisition of a 2D multi-client survey in the Chukchi Sea off the northwest coast of Alaska. The Chukchi Sea 2D 2013 survey covers approximately 8,000 km and builds on the existing Chukchi Sea (CSR-06) survey acquired in 2006 in Russian waters and the AWI Chukchi Sea (AWI08) survey acquired in 2008.
"This project was implemented following productive cooperation with local, state and federal agencies as well as local community stakeholders. The data will provide critical subsurface information for the scheduled BOEMRE lease rounds beginning in 2016," stated Rod Starr, Senior Vice President Western Hemisphere for TGS.
The seismic data is being acquired by the M/V Geo Arctic. Data processing will be performed by TGS and will be available to clients in the second quarter of 2014.
