Harvex Geosolutions are pleased to announce an agreement with the Direction Générale des Hydrocarbures (DGH) and Société Nationale d'Opérations Pétrolières de la Côte d'Ivoire (Petroci) to acquire a Multi-Client multibeam and seep sampling project offshore Côte d'Ivoire. Harvex will work with joint-venture partners Trois Geoconsulting and GeoPartners to manage the data acquisition, marketing and licensing of the project.

The program will acquire data over water depths from 750m to 3500m and cover an area of approximately 41,000 sq. km, with the possibility to acquire additional data in the deep water to the southern limit of the demarcated blocks, subject to client request. 

It is planned to obtain some 240 piston core samples from the seafloor, which will be geochemically analysed should seeps be indicated, to determine the age, API and source type, resulting in improved geological and geophysical interpretations to derisk future hydrocarbon exploration. Core target locations will be selected using backscatter analysis of the multibeam acquisition to detect anomalies that could be related to hydrocarbon seeps from the subsurface.

The program will commence Q2 2024, with acquisition expected to take around 120 days. Client sponsorship of the program is currently being sought.

For more information please contact Ben Sayers at GeoPartners: with regards to pre-funding discussions or Peter Macaulay ( for all other matters.
