The 6,700-sq km (2,587-sq mi) concession is in water depths of 1,400-3,700 m (4,593-12,139 ft).
It is to the west of the Dome Flore and Dome Gea oil accumulations, and south of Cairn Energy’s deepwater Fan-1 and SNE-1 and 2 oil discoveries offshore Senegal.
Impact was awarded the license in October 2014, and began its technical evaluation by purchasing legacy 2D and 3D seismic data, comprising around 3,990 sq km (1,540 sq mi) of 3D and 4,933 line km (3,065 mi) of 2D data.
Analysis suggests prospectivity at various stratigraphic levels, from the Cretaceous deepwater clastics in the west of the license to the Jurassic and Cretaceous platform margin plays in the east, similar to Cairn’s discoveries.
Assuming regulatory approval for the farm-in, Impact Oil & Gas AGC will retain a 20% interest with Entreprise AGC SA (an entity owned by Senegal and Guinea-Bissau) retaining 15%.
