TGS, a global provider of energy data and intelligence, has announced Swanson 3D, a new onshore multi-client 3D seismic survey within the Montney Basin of Northeast British Columbia, Canada.

The Swanson 3D project will add over 100 square kilometres of high-quality seismic data, complimenting the extensive 3D seismic coverage within the core area of the Montney Basin. Phase IV of TGS’ low-impact source testing will be applied throughout the project, reinforcing our commitment to dramatically lowering environmental footprints throughout seismic acquisition projects. Through cooperation with the area’s Stakeholders and several First Nation Communities, the pre-planning for Swanson 3D is well underway. Fuel emissions recording, reduced line widths, no-cut areas and low-impact source methods will be prevalent throughout the project.

Kristian Johansen, CEO at TGS, comments, “The Swanson 3D project is another great addition to TGS’ high-quality seismic data coverage in the Montney Basin, further expanding our extensive library onshore Canada. From seismic to well log and interpretation datasets, combined with our commitment to sustainable operations, we are uniquely positioned to help our customers gain subsurface insight and provide significant benefits to their exploration and production efforts.”

Acquisition will commence in Q4 2022, with data delivery expected in May 2023.

This project is supported by industry funding.
