2018 Seismic for Block Evaluation

Spectrum, in collaboration with the Direction Générale des Hydrocarbures (DGH) has undertaken a number of shallow water 3D seismic surveys across the open blocks available in the 12th License Round. This data provides the industry with state of the art 3D broadband data. A variety of plays are targeted to allow a new generation of oil exploration in these prolific basins.

Seismic has been acquired in both north and south of the country. The 11,500 km2 southern survey, now complete, is the definitive dataset to image the pre-salt and, for the first time, intra syn-rift plays can be targeted. In the North, acquisition of a 5,500 km2 3D survey images pre and post-salt targets.

Data is available now for License Round evaluation facilitating immediate activity when the blocks are awarded.
