Shearwater GeoServices introduced the award of a high-density multi-azimuth 3D seismic acquisition contract over the SNE subject offshore Senegal by Woodside Energy (Senegal) B.V in its capability as Operator of the SNE Field Development Joint Venture.
The contract covers the Sangomar, Sangomar Deep and Rufisque (RSSD) Offshore blocks which embody the SNE discovery.
The work, designed as excessive density and multi-azimuth survey, can be acquired by the Polar Marquis utilizing 14 streamers, and FlexiSource triple supply. Starting in early Q3 2019, the survey will take roughly 90 days to finish.
“We are happy to see the award by Woodside of this advanced multi-azimuth triple supply contract over these vital Senegal discoveries” mentioned Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices. “The award displays our capabilities as a full-service geophysical service supplier and the Polar Marquis’ glorious report working offshore Africa.”
SNE is a deep-water oil subject discovery situated within the RSSD Blocks, which cowl an space of seven,490m² throughout the Senegalese portion of the Mauritania-Senegal-Guinea-Bissau-Conakry Basin.
Situated at a water depth of 1,100m, at about 100km south of Dakar, the SNE oilfield was found with the drilling of the SNE-1 exploration nicely in November 2014. The deep-water subject was additional appraised by greater than ten appraisal wells between 2015 and 2017.
The oil reserves are hosted throughout the Cretaceous-age sandstones containing recoverable reserves of 32° API oil gravity, at a depth as much as three,000m beneath the ocean mattress. The oilfield is estimated to carry 2.7 billion barrels of recoverable oil reserves out of which, 230 million barrels can be recovered below the SNE part one improvement venture.
Development was initially undertaken by Cairn Energy, ConocoPhillips (operator), FAR, and Petrosen. Woodside Energy acquired 35% curiosity within the three way partnership from ConocoPhillips to develop into the venture operator in July 2016.
