TGS has began the acquisition of the new Erlend Wild West multi-client 3D seismic data West of Shetlands.
This survey will cover a minimum of 1,000 km2 in the UK West of Shetland region and ties into TGS’ existing EW12 3D data.
TGS will harness its acquisition and broadband processing expertise in this region, using its Clari- Fi broadband technology to deliver high fidelity imaging of the subsurface.
“Erlend Wild West 3D will expand TGS’ data coverage, including open acreage and existing discoveries, in the West of Shetlands region, where high potential prospects have been identified. This project will provide modern, high quality seismic data to an area that is highly relevant for exploration in the newly awarded acreage for the UK 30th Offshore Licensing Round,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO for TGS.
