October 13th, 2016. CGG has been awarded a multi-client program by the Instituto Nacional de Petroleo (INP) to acquire seismic data offshore Mozambique.
The program includes a 2D survey of over 6,550 km in the offshore Rovuma basin, including blocks R5-A, R5-B and R5-C, and a large 3D survey over the Beira High in the Zambezi Delta. The 3D survey is expected to be up to 40,000 km², subject to pre-commitment. It will cover blocks Z5-C and Z5-D and surrounding open acreage in this deltaic area, CGG explained.
CGG has also been awarded an onshore airborne gravity and magnetic survey in the Southern Mozambique Basin.
The proposed multi-client seismic program in the Mozambique Zambezi region will form part of a comprehensive, fully integrated geoscience package that will give participating companies a better overall understanding of the region. Marine gravity and magnetic data will be acquired simultaneously with the seismic to aid regional interpretation.
