TGS, a global provider of energy data and intelligence, has announced two new technology pilot projects for carbon capture and storage (CCS) and offshore wind in collaboration with Magseis Renewables AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Magseis Fairfield ASA.

The first project will utilise high-resolution 3D seismic acquisition in Norway at a carbon storage area to demonstrate technology for detailed imaging of the full section from the seabed to the target storage reservoir.

The second project will utilise ultra-high-resolution 3D seismic acquisition in Denmark over a wind farm with known near seabed challenges to demonstrate applying a high-frequency source coupled with TGS’ data processing technologies.

Both tests will combine TGS’ proprietary imaging software and Magseis Fairfield’s XHR acquisition configurations to demonstrate geophysical solutions that deliver the resolution needed at the cost level indicated by offshore wind and CCS players.

Ivar Slengesol, VP of New Energy Solutions Eastern Hemisphere, comments, “TGS looks forward to working together with Magseis Fairfield to provide new technologies that deliver on the need for high-quality geophysical solutions to support the energy transition for both wind and CCS.”

Acquisition will complete before the end of Q3 with final data available for viewing and workshops before the end of 2021.
