TGS has made the first phase of project deliverables for their East Coast India reprocessing project available to project participants. Final 2D-cubed, workstation-ready data will be delivered by the end of July 2022.

The TGS East Coast India 2D-cubed project encompasses hundreds of thousands of kilometres of existing 2D data across an area of over half a million square kilometres offshore India’s east coast. The comprehensive project utilises TGS’ proprietary 2D-cubed technology – a solution for generating a 3D seismic migration volume from a set of 2D seismic lines – to create a single conformable, easily accessible dataset designed to encourage and assist exploration endeavours offshore India.

Will Ashby, Executive Vice President – Eastern Hemisphere at TGS, comments, “This new dataset is one of many TGS initiatives providing seismic to boost exploration across the Asia region. It will allow explorers to better develop regional models in their pre-study evaluation process. Access to this data will also increase confidence in license round decision-making processes and maximise the potential of existing seismic data in the region by employing innovative processing techniques.”
