HOUSTON, TX–(Marketwired – Jan 30, 2017) – TGS announces commencement of field operations on the West Kermit 3D seismic survey in the Delaware Basin. This project will encompass a minimum of 150 square miles in Loving and Winkler Counties, TX.
This high resolution 3D survey is designed to assist in the evaluation and development of multiple zone potential including highly productive Wolfcamp and Bone Spring intervals. Data Acquisition is expected to begin in early Q2 2017 with final data available to clients in Q4 2017. The data will be processed by TGS utilizing its modern land imaging technology to provide clients with greater reservoir understanding. West Kermit 3D is complemented by TGS’ extensive geologic products database with data from over 425,000 wells and multiple interpretive products in the Permian Basin.
“This first project in the Permian basin is an important milestone in TGS’ onshore strategy and provides a platform for future growth in this prolific area. TGS already holds a leading position in three premier basins in North America: the Duvernay trend in Western Canada, the SCOOP&STACK play in the Anadarko Basin and the Utica trend in the Appalachian Basin. We are pleased to bring our knowledge and expertise to help our clients in their exploration and development activities in the Permian Basin,” commented Kristian Johansen, CEO for TGS.
This project is supported by industry funding.
