Posted by OilVoice Press - OilVoice


HOUSTON, TEXAS (24 August 2018) - TGS announces its latest multi-client project in the Delaware Basin, Quail Ridge East, which will be conducted in collaboration with Fairfield Geotechnologies. The collaboration also includes an Area of Mutual Interest (AMI) for further joint opportunities in the area.

The Quail Ridge East 3D survey is optimally located on the north flank of the Delaware Basin, extending TGS' current data portfolio to cover a minimum of 330 km2 in Western Lea County, New Mexico. The area draws strong industry attention with proven production from multiple stacked zones including the prolific Delaware Sands, the Avalon, the Bone Spring, the Wolfcamp A through D and the Strawn-Atoka.  

Quail Ridge East benefits from the latest advances in land imaging technology and will provide the E&P industry with critical information to support exploration and production activity in a high-priority region. This new survey is accompanied by over 14,000 wells from TGS' expansive well data library in addition to its formation tops database, updated well performance data through the LongbowTM solution and Basin Temperature Modeling (BTM) products.  

The TGS-Fairfield Geotechnologies AMI extends across the north half and east side of Lea County and into the west side of Winkler County, Texas, covering an area of 5,179 km2 bordering TGS' West Kermit 3D survey to the south. The Quail Ridge East 3D and the AMI cover areas of exceptional prospectivity along the basin flank and on the Central Platform and Northwest Shelf.  There is proven production in this region from multiple zones with high-resolution seismic opening renewed structural play potential.  The Quail Ridge East 3D survey, together with the future opportunities with Fairfield Geotechnologies under the AMI, build upon TGS' three existing surveys in the region and aim to bridge the gap between the Delaware and Central Basin Platform.

"We are excited to further develop our growing coverage in the Delaware Basin. TGS has a strong track record of success in developing and delivering projects in unconventional plays and this collaboration with Fairfield Geotechnologies further strengthens our ability to deliver increased customer value through an expansive suite of products in this coveted region," commented Kristian Johansen, CEO, TGS.

Acquisition on the Quail Ridge East survey has commenced and will be performed by Dawson Geophysical. Data will be processed by TGS utilizing TGS' modern land imaging technology with preliminary data available Q2 2019.

The survey is supported by industry prefunding.
