Stein Ove Isaksen, senior vice-president of Eastern Hemisphere at TGS, said, ”This survey extends our current data coverage in an important and prospective area. TGS has been active in acquiring data over the West Africa Transform Margin for the past decade and we are pleased with the level of customer support to continue our investment in this region.”
