PGS completed the acquisition of three new GeoStreamer 3D surveys offshore Newfoundland and Labrador in September. First fast-track results, including early-out QI, will be delivered in Q4 2020. Final imaging and interpretation products will be delivered 2021.
The Blomidon, South Bank, and Torngat Extension GeoStreamer 3D surveys together cover approximately 8 500 sq. km offshore Labrador and Newfoundland.
Marine seismic acquisition was carried out by the?Ramform Atlas?and?Ramform Titan?between June and September 2020, under full compliance with strict Covid-19 guidelines.
