Bahamas Petroleum Company PLC, the oil and gas exploration company with offshore licenses in The Bahamas, has signed an agreement with Osprey Navigation Company Inc., a subsidiary of SeaBird Exploration, to acquire a close grid 2D seismic in the Company's four southern licenses using the M/V Osprey Explorer.
Prior to 2010, the existing vintage seismic dated back to 1987. BPC acquired further seismic data in June 2010 using modern, more advanced seismic acquisition technology and the data obtained proved up the existence of potential super-giant traps, with seismic indications of the presence of hydrocarbons.
The Company anticipates that the 2011 survey will define drillable prospects and resource potential in place. This is the first prospect-level survey in the Bahamas. In addition, the Company has the option to acquire seismic, using Osprey Navigation, in its northern licence area.
The four southern licenses include Bain, Cooper, Donaldson and Eneas, and the northern license is called Miami. All are held wholly by Bahamas Petroleum Company.
