World supplier of power information and intelligence TGS, in partnership with PGS and Schlumberger, has secured pre-funding for a 6,885 sq. kilometer (2,658 sq. mile) multi-client 3D seismic survey offshore Malaysia within the North Luconia Province of the Sarawak Basin.
TGS mentioned in a press release on Tuesday that this new acquisition was because of start in June 2023. The survey is the second section of a multi-year contract awarded initially by Petronas in August 2020 to accumulate and course of as much as 105,000 sq. kilometers of multi-client 3D information over 5 years within the Basin.
This survey builds on the preliminary section of this undertaking within the Sarawak North Luconia Province, which began in 2021 and coated 8,400 sq. kilometers.
“TGS has constructed an expansive multi-client information library throughout the Asia-Pacific area, and we’re happy to return to the Sarawak Basin with our companions.

We proceed to work carefully and collaboratively with our clients, companions, and different stakeholders in Malaysia to drive exploration success,” Kristian Johansen, TGS CEO, acknowledged.
“Because the custodian of Malaysia’s petroleum assets, Malaysia Petroleum Administration, Petronas is actively enhancing seismic information units within the nation that can introduce new performs to be explored to our shoppers, particularly in imaging the pre-MMU play within the deep-water space of Sarawak Basin,” he added.
Survey acquisition is predicted to conclude in August 2023, with closing deliverables out there within the second half of 2024. Interim outcomes will probably be out there to help with early acreage analysis.
In latest firm information, TGS began work in mid-April on the 7,856-square-mile Peninsular Malaysia Stage 2 Regional 3D reprocessing undertaking. Together with the 7,856-square-mile Stage 1 undertaking, the information protection represents one of many largest multi-client 3D reprocessing tasks ever undertaken in Asia.
