TGS declares a brand new multi-client onshore 3D seismic survey, Railgun 3D, situated throughout the Powder River Basin.
Railgun 3D will embody roughly 680 km2 in Converse and Campbell Counties, Wyoming. The high-resolution survey is ideally situated within the excessive potential pattern core of the basin the place the potential stratigraphic part of stacked reservoirs exceeds 5000 ft in thickness. Unconventional targets embody two world class supply rocks, the Niobrara and Mowry, together with quite a few traditionally productive tight sand formations together with the Turner, Sussex, Shannon, Parkman, Frontier and Teapot, that at the moment are being exploited efficiently with unconventional applied sciences.
Recording will start in Q3 2019 and shall be accomplished earlier than the top of the 12 months. The knowledge shall be processed by TGS using its fashionable land imaging expertise to supply purchasers with larger reservoir understanding. The Railgun 3D is complemented by TGS’ in depth geologic merchandise which embody a completely interpreted regional basin stratigraphic mannequin that’s analytics-ready, derived from an intensive library of high-quality properly knowledge. More than 41,000 LAS logs and over 145,000 raster logs are instantly obtainable for the Powder River Basin.
“TGS’ entry into the Powder River Basin is per our technique to establish prolific and excessive potential onshore performs the place the appliance of recent seismic can ship vital advantages to the exploration and manufacturing of hydrocarbons,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO for TGS. “Through the Railgun 3D, TGS establishes a stable place on this identified hydrocarbon producing province that can improve our present library choices and supply further alternatives for progress on this vital basin.”
The Powder River Basin is a geologic structural basin in southeast Montana and northeast Wyoming, about 120 miles east to west and 200 miles north to south, identified for its coal deposits.
