CGG in support of SNH promotion of open acreages in Rio del Rey and Douala/Kribi-Campo Basins

CGG has announced that it has an agreement with Société Nationale des Hydrocarbures (SNH), the National Oil and Gas Company of Cameroon, to promote enhanced multi-client E&P data packages and interpretative products, in support of Cameroon’s 2018 Onshore & Offshore Licensing Round opened and conducted by SNH for eight free blocks on offer, located in sedimentary basins offshore and onshore Cameroon.

The Licensing Round opened on 15 January 2018 and will close on 29 June 2018. Roadshows will be held in London on 28 February to 2 March 2018 and in Houston on 7 to 9 March 2018, with the participation of specialists from both SNH and CGG.

Cameroon is a proven hydrocarbon province with oil and gas production from both the Rio Del Rey (RDR) and Douala/Kribi-Campo (DKC) basins. Significant further opportunities exist for commercial hydrocarbon accumulations in both basins with large tracts of open acreage available, particularly in the DKC basin. Recent new petrophysical and geophysical analyses have identified potential missed opportunities from previous exploration, and there is even more potential for large volumes of hydrocarbons to be present across these increasingly prospective basins.

The TerraCubeTM suite of integrated data packages of the onshore/offshore DKC and RDR sedimentary basins will offer oil and gas explorers access to workstation-ready 2D and 3D seismic, well data and interpretative products, with unrivalled coverage, enabling them to make a rapid technical evaluation of the hydrocarbon potential of the blocks on offer.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: “The 2018 Licensing Round offers exciting opportunities for the international oil and gas industry to add strategic acreage positions with significant potential in proven hydrocarbon-bearing basins in Cameroon. With the integrated well and seismic packages, CGG is making available, in partnership with SNH, interested oil and gas companies will be able to focus on identifying the petroleum prospectivity for the available blocks.”
