New MC3D west of Shetland

This data survey offers an enhanced subsurface image of the region to assist in the geological understand of this highly prolific region, according to TGS.

TGS announced the new multi-client 3D seismic survey EWW (Erlend Wild West), a 3,900 km2 survey consisting of 1,900 km2 of data acquired during a project which began in the autumn of 2018, using Clari-Fi broadband technology to deliver high fidelity imaging of the subsurface, along with a number of vintage surveys, including EW12 3D.

TGS states that the combination of processing of new data and the reprocessing of vintage data for this survey area has realized a significant upshift (uplift) in imaging the visualization of the sub–basalt-influenced geological settings, including high-velocity contrasts and volcanics.

This will allow a greater understanding of the plays in one of the most exciting E&P sectors regions of the UK continental shelf, according to TGS. The MC3D is now available and being delivered to first customers.
