TGS Announces 3D Multi-Client Onshore Survey In South Central Alberta, Canada

August 23, 2013

TGS, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Arcis Seismic Solutions, has announced a new 3D multi-client onshore survey, Three Hills East, covering 150 km2 (58 mi2) in the south central plains of Alberta, Canada.

The Three Hills Eastsurvey is designed to evaluate multiple zones from the Devonian (Nisku), the Mississippian (Banff and Pekisko), and the Cretaceous (Ellerslie and Ostracod) in the newly emerging Duvernay play.  The survey's optimal acquisition parameters, enhanced imaging and rock property assessments will provide even greater assistance with the placement of horizontal wells in this highly prospective area.

Permitting is underway and data acquisition is expected to commence in September 2013.  The seismic data will be processed by Arcis and final data will be available to clients Q4 2013.

The survey is supported by industry funding.
