TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co.’s 2013 project builds on an existing Chukchi Sea survey shot in 2006 in Russian waters and the AWI Chukchi Sea survey acquired in 2008. Data are to be available to clients in the second quarter of 2014.

The geophysical contractor said it implemented the project “following productive cooperation with local, state and federal agencies as well as local community stakeholders.”
