LYSKAER, Norway -- PGS, in co-operation with Petroci, has completed acquiring, processing and interpreting over 6,500 km (4,039 mi) of new 2D seismic data collected offshore Côte d'Ivoire. The data are now available for licensing from PGS.

The dataset covers the entire deepwater of Côte d'Ivoire, from the maritime border with Liberia in the west to Ghana in the east. Acquired with a 8,500-m (27,887-ft) cable to allow for imaging of the full sedimentary section, the data were processed using Kirchoff pre-stack time migration.

PGS says the completed interpretation of the multi-client 2D data shows prospects and leads in both the deeper syn-rift section and also in the shallower post, rift. The data also indicates a thicker sedimentary section that had previously been expected, providing much more extensive potential source kitchens than had been mapped to date.
