3D seismic survey under way offshore Namibia

Offshore staff

LONDON – PGS Exploration Ltd. has started a 3D seismic acquisition survey over blocks 2312 and 2412A offshore Namibia for Chariot Oil & Gas Ltd. and partners AziNam, NAMCOR, and Ignitus.

The 2,600-sq km (1,004-sq mi) survey is expected to take approximately 40 days.

Following the analysis of its survey of approximately 1,700 line km (1,056 mi) of 2D seismic data acquired on the north western flank of the license in 2015, the company has identified several significant additional leads within the Upper Cretaceous deepwater clastic turbidite system.

While there are drill ready prospects already identified in the central blocks, this 3D survey will enable Chariot and its partners to mature these new leads and further develop its inventory in this region.

The survey is expected to take approximately 40 days.
