CGG to increase seismic coverage offshore Gabon
CGG will conduct a 9,800-km (6,089-mi) long-offset 2D seismic survey in an unexplored deepwater area of the South Basin off Gabon.
PARIS– CGG will conduct a 9,800-km (6,089-mi) long-offset 2D seismic survey in an unexplored deepwater area of the South Basin off Gabon.
A subset of the data over the offered license blocks will be available in advance ofGabon’s 12th offshore licensing round planned for June 2019.
The new 2D data will help define the full extent of existing and new plays in the region, the company said. It will also aid in understanding the thickness variations in the sediment overburden for source rock and maturity analysis.
CGG’s broadband processing workflow will increase the resolution and improve the characterization of the turbidite systems that represent potential exploration targets. The low frequencies delivered will provide deep penetration to enhance understanding of the nature of the deep crust. New insights from this survey will expand and update the company’s current JumpStart integrated geoscience package.
