BUDE, UK -- Surestream Petroleum has contracted WGP Group for a feasibility study for a planned 2D seismic survey in Burundi’s section of Lake Tanganyika.

Reading, UK-based Surestream was awarded licenses for blocks D and B in 2008 and 2009. The company has commissioned WGP as a specialist provider of 2D surveys in complex marine environments.

Members of WGP’s operations team recently returned from investigations in the area to inspect potential vessels, the conditions on the lake, local infrastructure, and logistics options.

Marcus Smith, WGP’s operations manager, says: “Performing a safe and high-yield survey on Lake Tanganyika is certainly possible, but will require detailed planning and flexible execution.”
