TGS, a leading provider of multi-client geoscience data for exploration and production (E&P) companies, will implement Enhanced Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry (eFTG) survey on Ganoub El Wadi Petroleum Holding Company’s (Ganope) assets in Upper Egypt, according to a statement.

This is the first-ever regional airborne eFTG survey in Upper Egypt, and it will cover about 120,000 km2 of Ganope’s assets. The survey aims to provide sufficient data on the geological structures and sedimentary basins in Upper Egypt. This will enable Egypt to launch new international onshore bid rounds for the region. It is also the first phase of a program that will turn into a multi-year acquisition that aims to cover both onshore and offshore Egypt.  

Rune Eng, TGS’s Executive Vice President expressed his excitement over this partnership denoting that “[the project] will provide much-needed high-resolution data to a region that is set to significantly step-up its hydrocarbon activities in 2020 and beyond.”

EFTG is the world’s most advanced moving-base gravity gradiometer, possessing a noise floor about three times lower than the FTG and providing data with higher bandwidth.
