Alberta: Ille Lake deep basin 3D spec survey being shot

TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co., through its wholly-owned subsidiary Arcis Seismic Solutions, has begun shooting a 180 sq km 3D multiclient onshore survey at Ille Lake, between Sylvan Lake and Drayton Valley, in the deep basin of Central Alberta, Canada.

The survey is optimized and designed to evaluate multiple zones from the Cardium and the Upper and Lower Mannville (Glauconite, Ostracod, and Basal Quartz oil), through to the newly emerging Duvernay unconventional play.

In addition to the survey’s optimal acquisition parameters, Arcis provides proprietary tools that will enhance imaging and rock property assessments for even greater assistance with the placement of horizontal wells.

Arcis will process the information, and final data will be available in the first quarter of 2013. The survey is supported by industry funding.
