Schlumberger plans reimaging program onshore Mexico

Schlumberger Ltd. and Seitel Inc. have formed a multiclient alliance to reimage and acquire geophysical data onshore Mexico.

About 25,000 km of 2D seismic data from Mexico’s National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) library will be reimaged covering lease blocks in the current Bid Round 2 as well as future onshore lease round blocks. New multiclient data acquisition projects also are already in development.

The newly reprocessed seismic data and new acquisition projects will provide subsurface images of proved oil and gas reservoirs in the Sabina-Burgos, Tampico-Misantla, Veracruz, and Sureste areas as well as the underexplored Chihuahua province and other areas. The reimaging program covers both conventional and unconventional onshore lease blocks in the areas.

“The areas for reimaging were strategically selected to deliver regional analysis of the prospective plays across onshore Mexico with both organizations using high-end processing workflows,” said Maurice Nessim, president of Schlumberger’s WesternGeco Ltd.

“This alliance capitalizes on each organization’s strong commitment to Mexico exploration over some of the largest onshore Mexico fields, including the onshore Cuenca del Sureste basin, which shares many hydrocarbon system elements with the prolific Pilar Reforma-Akal in the shallow-water Campeche area,” Nessim said.
