We read, with much interest, the TLE article describing the development of 3D surveys by Gulf (Watson, 2009). After a successful ultrasonic test by Gulf R&D of a 3D model immersed in water, the technology was tested in the field in 1974. This resulted in possibly the first 3D offshore survey but the data were not published at the time for proprietary concerns.
