Polarcus starts MSGB seismic survey off northwest Africa

Offshore staff

DUBAI, UAE – Polarcus Ltd. has started a new 3D broadband multi-client project across the Mauritania-Senegal-Guinea-Bissau basin (MSGB) offshore northwest Africa.

The project, supported by industry funding, will cover 1,500 sq km (579 sq mi) offshore Gambia and is expected to run for 50 days. Final data products will be available in 1Q 2016.

Polarcus said prefunding of the survey is a response to the heightened interest in the Cretaceous slope fan and shelf-edge reef plays along the entire MSGB margin subsequent to recent drilling success in Senegal.
