Energy data provider TGS, in a joint venture with oilfield services company SLB, announced Feb. 5 the Engagement 5 ocean- bottom node (OBN) multiclient acquisition in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

Starting in the first quarter 2024, Engagement 5, the seventh program within the seismic JV, involves the acquisition of 157 Outer Continental Shelf blocks through a long offset, sparse OBN survey. The Engagement 5 dataset will use elastic full-waveform inversion and long offset data to provide leaseholders and regional explorers with “technically advanced” subsurface imaging, the companies stated.

The expansion of data coverage in the eastern region of Green Canyon will adjoin with prior phases, establishing a continuous coverage area of over 23,000 sq km, from the Mississippi Canyon to the Garden Banks licenses.

Initial data results will be available in the second half of  2024.
