The new data will provide companies with dense data coverage over the license area, the company said.

The M/V Viking Balder icebreaker will accompany the M/V Akademik Shatskiy seismic vessel, and a helicopter is being used for ice density monitoring. TGS will process the data, which will be available in the first quarter of 2014.
