TGS announces new 2d seismic survey offshore Bangladesh

Energy data provider TGS on January 3 announced a new regional multi-client 2D seismic programme offshore Bangladesh in partnership with SLB and Petrobangla.

The initial phase of the programme will comprise a minimum programme area of around 11,000 line km of new multi-client seismic data acquisition. The overall programme plans to encompass around 32,000 line km of multi-client seismic data covering most of offshore Bangladesh, TGS said.

The new data will be acquired using long offset and long record lengths to image the deeper sections. The seismic data will be processed through modern high-end broadband pre-stack time and depth migrated (PSTM/PSDM) workflows.

"This multi-phase seismic program will provide a much-needed regional framework for understanding the Bengal Fan, considered one of the most extensive remaining unexplored frontier basins remaining in the world,” TGS CEO Kristian Johansen said. “Following the successful completion of our extensive East Coast India 2Dcubed reprocessing project, we continue to provide a seismic-fuelled boost across the Bay of Bengal to support offshore exploration in this region and augment license round decision-making."

The acquisition plans to start in early January 2023, with final processing deliverables anticipated in Q1 2024.
