Astrium Services Integrates Global Seeps with TGS’ New Seismic Data

Astrium Services Integrates Global Seeps with TGS’ New Seismic Data to Better Locate Offshore Oil Prospects

  • Nalcor Energy Oil & Gas realises benefits of integrating Global Seeps with seismic data
  • Off-the-shelf oil seeps study available now – Offshore Newfoundland & Labrador

Leicester, UK – 20th March 2012 – Astrium Services’ GEO-Information teams have signed an agreement with TGS, who provides seismic data to oil and gas exploration and production companies worldwide, to utilise Astrium’s Global Seeps to help improve the probability of locating new offshore discoveries.

During a recent joint project, enhanced targeting of potential hydrocarbon prospects was achieved when oil seepage slicks information from Astrium GEO-Information Services’ Global Seeps database was integrated with frontier seismic data. TGS will use Astrium’s offshore oil seepage information products to plan and position seismic surveys. This will enable oil & gas firms to source combined seismic and Global Seeps data, streamline future exploration efforts, and improve the chances of successfully identifying slicks resulting from natural seepage of hydrocarbon reserves.
