Mongolia due full tensor gradiometer work

Petro Matad Ltd., Douglas, Isle-of-Man, has let a contract to Bell Geospace for an airborne full tensor gravity gradiometry survey over two onshore blocks in Mongolia.

Bell Geospace will acquire 4,247 sq miles of data over Blocks IV and V in central Mongolia.

Block IV covers about 11,160 sq miles, and Block V covers about 8,110 sq miles.

Petro Matad said the program is designed “to provide high-resolution gravity coverage, capable of resolving prospect-scale structural features, to aid in correlation between 2D seismic profiles and extrapolate structural networks into frontier areas to optimize future exploration work.”

The survey, covering an area of mountainous desert and steppe, will be the first application in Mongolia of the full tensor gradiometer technique.
