Following the highly successful Amendment Phase 1 project acquired in Mississippi Canyon in 2019, TGS, in strategic collaboration with Schlumberger, announced the second phase of their ultra-long offset node project in US Gulf of Mexico. The next phase will extend the footprint of ultra-long offset data to the Northern Green Canyon protraction area and will be called Engagement. This area is characterized by complex geology and multiple salt bodies, driving industry towards a new approach to illuminate the subsurface structures. The combination of ocean bottom node data, used to record ultra-long offsets and full waveform inversion, is expected to deliver a significant uplift to the velocity model which in turn will be used to amend the existing WAZ and Coil data in the area.

Acquisition of the project is expected to commence in April 2020 with final data available in 2021. The Amendment and Engagement projects represent a new generation of survey design, with significant areas in the Gulf of Mexico and elsewhere that will benefit.

This project is supported by industry funding.
