UK Faroe-Shetland basin 3D survey under way

By OGJ editors

TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co. has begun shooting a multiclient 3D survey in the Faroe-Shetland basin.

The survey covers 2,500 sq km west of the British Isles over quads 6004, 204, and 205 and is acquired in partnership with PGS. The new survey is being shot by the PGS Ramform Viking towing twelve 6,000 m streamers with 75-m separation.

Data acquisition will continue through the third quarter of 2011, and the vessel will return in 2012 to complete the survey. TGS and PGS will process the data.
