SALISBURY, UK -- Rockhopper Exploration has complete its 2D seismic survey over the Weddell prospect and surrounding areas, offshore the Falkland Islands.

"Due to high operational efficiency and good weather we instructed Wavefield Inseis to collect 550 km (342 mi) of 2D seismic in total, some 83% more than originally anticipated," says Sam Moody, Rockhopper MD. "This extra data should put us in a strong position to further de-risk the acreage. This infill 2D seismic data will now be processed and interpreted."
