Arctic Directory: PGS conducts first 3-D GeoStreamer survey in Gulf

In November, Petroleum Geo-Services acquired a new MultiClient 3-D seismic survey in the area of DeSoto Canyon offshore Alabama and Florida in the Gulf of Mexico, using its new GeoStreamer technology.

Covering about 250 deepwater OCS blocks, the new program, named “Discovery,” will focus on an underexplored area recently opened for leasing.

It will be the industry’s first 3-D implementation of GeoStreamer yielding higher fidelity data, PGS said.

The first phase of data acquisition is set to begin in December and completed in about nine months.

BP America is a survey underwriter and will collaborate technically on the project.
