Spectrum, in collaboration with the Direction Generale des Hydrocarbures (DGH), has commenced the subsequent part of its shallow water 3D Multi-Client seismic acquisition marketing campaign offshore north Gabon with a 3D survey.
The marketing campaign is targeted on buying seismic applications in under-explored shallow water open blocks with the target of providing essentially the most up-to-date 3D imaging of the realm. The DGH intends to make these blocks out there via future shallow water license rounds so to speed up exploration; this information will facilitate instant exercise when the blocks are awarded.
Up to five,500 km2 of lengthy offset broadband seismic information will probably be acquired alongside gravity and magnetic recordings. This follows the 11,400 km2 Gabon South 3D survey accomplished earlier this yr and enhances over 20,000 km of 2D Multi-Client seismic information offshore Gabon additionally held by Spectrum on behalf of the DGH, which provides a regional overview and highlights key areas of exploration.
Spectrum EVP of the Africa Region, Graham Mayhew commented, “Large areas of shallow water Gabonese acreage stay unexplored as a result of incapability of 2D seismic to picture constructions within the pre-salt, and the shortage of recent 3D information. Our new Multi-Client 3D seismic will present oil firms with new perception into the hydrocarbon prospectivity of those open blocks. ”
The new 3D information will probably be processed with PSTM, PSDM and Broadband merchandise with first deliveries in early Q3 2018 forward of anticipated licensing rounds. The survey is carried out in partnership with China Oilfield Services (COSL). (Source: Spectrum)
