Oslo, Norway, PGS in partnership with TGS, today announced Lewis Hills 3D MultiClient Phase 2 offshore Newfoundland. Phase 2 includes the acquisition of 947 square kilometers of additional 3D data, tying into the existing project’s 2 811 sq. km to create one contiguous dataset.
The Lewis Hill 3D volume is positioned in the highly prospective Orphan Basin, with recent discoveries in the Flemish Pass and connecting further south to the productive Jeanne D’Arc Basin.
Neil Paddy, VP North America at PGS commented, "The Lewis Hills Phase 2 survey completes coverage between the Flemish Pass and Orphan Basin. GeoStreamer imaging technology supports the ongoing exploration drilling programs and this project will be key in enhancing understanding of the petroleum systems at play."
David Hajovsky, EVP of Western Hemisphere at TGS, commented, “The TGS and PGS joint venture continues to consistently provide the highest quality data ahead of scheduled licensing rounds – further strengthening our position in East Coast Canada. Phase 2 of this project will provide additional contiguous 3D data coverage and enhance the geological understanding in the region, allowing clients to de-risk their exploration activities and investments.”
This project is supported by industry funding. Final fully processed stacks are expected to be delivered to the industry by Q3 2022.
