New Jeanne d'Arc HD3D Seismic Survey in East Canada Announced
TGS and PGS recently announced a joint multi-client High Density 3D project in the Jeanne d’Arc Basin offshore Newfoundland, East Canada. The project will cover approximately 5,000 km2 and is the first comprehensive high resolution 3D dataset to be acquired within this mature basin, which is a large asymmetric half-graben trending north-north-east, lying about 300 km east-south-east of the capital of Newfoundland, St John’s.
The PGS vessel Ramform Atlas has commenced acquisition, utilizing its high-resolution Geostreamer® technology, and is expected to complete in late Q3 2019. The survey has been designed to cover multiple Exploration Licenses, Significant Discovery Licenses and sections of the open acreage included in the November 2019 bid round.
Following this ninth consecutive season of data acquisition in offshore East Canada, the PGS/TGS jointly-owned library will have more than 189,000 km of 2D GeoStreamer data and approximately 56,000 km2 of 3D GeoStreamer data. An expansive well log library is also available in the region, along with advanced multi-client interpretation products that will improve play, trend and prospect delineation.
