Norwegian offshore seismic data company TGS has announced the resumption of its geochemical coring project offshore Nigeria. 

The initiative is part of an anomaly targeting program focusing on the previously completed analysis of multibeam and backscatter data, TGS said. 

This survey is being conducted in conjunction with Nigerian joint venture partner TGS-PetroData.

The coring leg began on October 15, and completion is planned for late November.

"This coincides with an exciting time for the industry in Nigeria with significant progress being seen on the long-awaited Petroleum Industry Bill," TGS said.

Kristian Johansen, CEO at TGS, said, "This multibeam and seismic coverage alongside coring and geochemical analysis will further de-risk the offshore region and speed up exploration decision-making in an area which is likely to see a growing level of licensing activity in the near future. With the progress of the Petroleum Industry Bill the opportunities to further explore offshore Nigeria have never been more appealing.”

The project covers an area of approximately 82,000 square kilometers offshore Nigeria and will incorporate 17 seabed heat flow measurements and 253 seabed cores whose location is based on multibeam and backscatter anomalies. 

These data are complemented by TGS’ NGRE19 2D seismic data reprocessed last year to take advantage of modern seismic imaging techniques. Final reports will be ready for industry review in Q1 2021, TGS said.
