TGS Commences Multi-Client 2D Survey in Northeast Greenland 
ASKER, NORWAY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/13 --  TGS has commenced
expansion of a 2D multi-client survey in Northeast Greenland.  
The survey, NEG13, will enable customers to prepare for the announced
Greenland Licensing Round in 2013/2014. Due to favorable ice
conditions, TGS expects to acquire 4,200 km of 2D multi-client
seismic data. This new data will provide companies with dense data
coverage over the licensing area and will be a significant addition
to TGS' already robust data library in the area.  
The seismic data is being acquired by the M/V Akademik Shatskiy
supported by the ice breaker M/V Viking Balder. A helicopter is being
utilized for ice density monitoring. Data processing will be
performed by TGS and data will be available to clients in Q1 2014.  
The survey is supported by industry funding.
