TGS has announced that it has added a further 1,500 square kilometres of 3D seismic data offshore The Gambia. This dataset will further expand TGS’ existing 3D multi-client library in the MSGBC Basin, which now totals over 40,000 square kilometres, as well as strengthening its strong footprint in the region.

The survey falls over blocks A2/A5 where sub-surface structures have been identified as being on-trend with the SNE discovery immediately north in Senegal. The dataset will be reprocessed and pre-stack merged into the Jaan program, a 29,000 square kilometre 3D covering the prospective paleo-shelf edge.

“This important data addition aligns with our strategy of investing in frontier and emerging basins. We expect to see further discoveries made in this basin and believe our 3D data will be critical in providing exploration companies the ability to invest further,” says Graham Mayhew, VP – Africa, Mediterranean and Middle East at TGS.
