The survey for TGS will cover an area of 11,500 square kilometres and will involve the technologically-advanced seismic vessel towing a large receiver spread, comprising multiple solid streamers each ten kilometres in length

The purpose-built 3D seismic vessel is equipped with specialised, advanced maritime technology to minimize the environmental footprint of the operation and the vessel continues to set new standards for the industry, having been awarded the highest achievable Triple-E(TM) environmental and energy efficiency rating by DNV-GL, the world's leading ship and maritime classification society.

"This will be our first project in the US; the first of many we anticipate in the years ahead,” said Rolf Ronningen, CEO Polarcus. “We are especially excited to have this opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities within this important market and we look forward to bringing our unique environmental agenda to the US Gulf and to delivering TGS a very high quality dataset for their multi-client programme."

The survey for TGS will cover an area of 11,500 square kilometres and will involve the technologically-advanced seismic vessel towing a large receiver spread, comprising multiple solid streamers each ten kilometres in length, and a specialised source array designed to focus the acoustic energy in a vertical direction.  The programme will image both the regional stratigraphy and deep basin structures in the deepwater Central Gulf of Mexico.
