Oslo-based geophysical services giant TGS is mobilising a seismic vessel to Western Australia for a large 3D seismic acquisition in the area close to the Dorado and Pavo oil discoveries.

The Capreolus phase two 3D seismic survey will comprise 4500 square kilometres of multi-client seismic data in the underexplored Beagle sub-basin. The area is adjacent to the Capreolus phase one survey acquired in 2015 by Polarcus and purchased by TGS in 2018.
