HAMILTON, Bermuda -- Dominion is currently undertaking a 2D-seismic survey on part of its Tanzania Production Sharing Agreement areas. Dominion's contractor, Upstream Petroleum Services, began acquisition of approximately 230 km (143 mi) of seismic in the northern part of Mandawa in November.
According to Dominion, the objective of the survey is to better define a large sub-surface feature identified on the 2006 survey, which the company believes may be a large carbonate build-up. The survey will be completed by the end of February.
The company used seismic vesselGeomariner for the acquisition of approximately 4,325 km (2,687 mi) of 2D seismic on its offshore license, block 7. The purpose of the survey is to identify drilling targets for further analysis using 3D seismic.
