TGS Announces New Multi-Client 2D Survey in Northeast Greenland

ASKER, NORWAY--(Marketwire - Sep 6, 2011) - TGS has commenced a new 1,000 km multi-client 2D survey in Northeast Greenland in partnership with Fugro.

This survey will enable customers to prepare for the announced Greenland Licensing Round in 2012/2013 and will significantly add to a data set that TGS has been growing since 2008 in this promising region. After this year's data acquisition, TGS will be able to offer approximately 4,500 km of new multi-client 2D data, a large volume of reprocessed multi-client 2D data and full coverage of aeromagnetic/gravity data over the basins that are to be included in the planned licensing round.

The new seismic data is being acquired by the M/V Akademik Shatskiy supported by the ice breaker M/V Fennicia and is scheduled to complete during Q4 2011. Data processing will be performed by TGS and data will be available to clients during Q1 2012.

The survey is supported by industry funding.
