Geoscience data provider to the oil and gas industry TGS on Tuesday announced it has begun a 2D multi-client survey offshore Sierra Leone, SL13.

SL13 will add 9,191 km of new 2D data to the 5,784 acquired in 2001, bringing the total to approximately 15,000 km of contiguous 2D multi-client data and 6,268 km2 of 3D data offshore Sierra Leone once the survey is completed. The survey is supported by industry funding, TGS said in a press release.

The M/V Geo Arctic seismic survey vessel is acquiring the data. M/V Geo Arctic is a marine single-screw two decker with improved middle-size upper deck specifically designed for 2D seismic survey of oil and gas fields.

Data processing will be performed by TGS and will be available to clients in Q4 2013.
