OSLO, Norway – PGS has released final PSTM and PSDM products from its latest multi-client 3D surveys in the Namibe basin offshore Angola and Namibia.
New 3D GeoStreamer seismic coverage brings fresh understanding for exploration in deepwater blocks 29, 30, 44, and 45 in Angola, and blocks 1710, 1711, 1810, and 1811A in Namibia.
The company’s ANG Namibe 2020 3D GeoStreamer dataset targets more than 14,000 sq km (5,405 sq mi), adjacent to the ANG Namibe 2014 3D survey. The NAM 2019 3D GeoStreamer survey covers more than 8,900 sq km (3,436 sq mi) of exploration acreage in the Namibian sector of the basin.
It now offers continuous coverage of the southern Namibe basin, with final products comprising more than 34,000 sq km (13,127 sq mi) of high-quality broadband seismic data, tying into important exploration and ODP wells.
Regional 3D GeoStreamer data, incorporating FWI velocity model building, will help to establish target plays and traps in the southern Namibe basin through better imaging of structure and basin fill, the company said.
Basin-wide broadband coverage enables the mapping of Cretaceous through to Tertiary play elements in a basin framework, facilitating the identification of sweet spots and derisking further exploration.
