TGS extends Declaration multi-WAZ survey in Gulf of Mexico TGS has extended its Declaration multi-WAZ (wide-azimuth) survey in the Mississippi Canyon and DeSoto Canyon protraction areas of the Gulf of Mexico. The extension represents a minimum 2,000 km2 of additional data to be acquired by CGG, using the single-pass vessel configuration derived from its StagSeis technology. The extension is based on early observations from the fast-track migration of phase one of the Declaration project. TGS COO Kristian Johansen commented, “Expanding the survey to cover the extent of the current, Lower Tertiary, Norphlet fairway will provide data for current, and future, exploration and development objectives.” Acquisition of the extension is expected to complete during second-quarter 2015, followed by fast-track deliverables and final imaging products in 2016.
