Polarcus expands multi-client footprint offshore Guinea-Bissau

Oilfield Technology,

Polarcus Limited has expanded of the company's multi-client data library offshore Guinea-Bissau.

3D broadband seismic to fully understand the complex reservoirs

The recently announced dual well successes on trend to the north, offshore Senegal, have resulted in renewed industry interest in the Cretaceous slope fan and shelf-edge reef plays along the basin margin. Similar plays to the south in both the AGC and Guinea-Bissau have now been significantly de-risked for oil source but will still require the greater resolution inherent in 3D broadband seismic to fully understand the complex trapping and migration route configurations required for further drilling success.

In response to this heightened industry interest Polarcus has secured further industry prefunding to acquire, in collaboration with Petroguin E.P., a new 3D multi-client survey offshore Guinea-Bissau, expanding the company's 3D multi-client data library across the Mauritania-Senegal-Guinea-Bissau Basin (MSGB) in the AGC and Guinea-Bissau to over 8300 km2.

RightBAND 3D survey

The new high density RightBAND™ 3D survey of approximately 2300 km2 will commence in Q4, 2014 utilising a Polarcus A-Class seismic vessel and is expected to run for approximately 75 days. Final data products will be available mid-2015.
