Offshore staff

SINGAPORE – CGG has completed a 2D seismic acquisition program offshore Bangladesh for KrisEnergy. The Binh Minh 2 vessel covered 3,146 km (1,955 mi) in block SS-11.

Block SS-11 encompasses 4,476 sq km (1,728 sq mi) in the Bay of Bengal. Most of the water is 200 m (656 ft) deep or less.

Chris Gibson-Robinson, KrisEnergy’s director Exploration & Production, said: “The existing 2D data sets were acquired in the mid-1970s and this program will provide higher resolution data to confirm existing prospects and leads and assess the overall prospectivity of the block. It will also help us determine potential locations for a planned 3D seismic program, to which we are committed under the work program obligations.”

Santos Sangu Field Ltd. is the operator of SS-11 with 45%. KrisEnergy (Asia) Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of the KrisEnergy group of companies, holds 45% and Bangladesh Petroleum Exploration & Production Co. Ltd. has a 10% working interest.
