HOUSTON -Polarcus has begun acquiring 3D seismic over two blocks operated by Camac Energy Gambia.

The 12-streamer 3D/4D vessel vesselPolarcus Alima should take around 50 days to cover 1,500 sq km (579 sq mi) over the A2 and A5 blocks, 28 mi (45 km) offshore The Gambia. Both are said to be on-trend with Cairn Energy’s deepwater FAN-1 and SNE-1 discoveries offshore Senegal.

Kase Lawal, chairman and CEO of Camac parent company Erin Energy, said:The acquisition of 3D seismic data in this emerging West Africa margin basin will provide valuable pre-drill information that is key to evaluating the exploration potential of these blocks, which are in close proximity to recent offshore Senegal oil discoveries.”
