MultiClient Geophysical (MCG) has finalized the acquisition of the part of the Maximus 2D multi-client survey covering blocks to be announced in the first deep-water bid round in the Salinas Basin offshore Mexico.
The survey, comprises some 19,000 km of high quality 2D seismic data and covers all 6 blocks to be included in the first deep-water license round in Mexico, in addition to all blocks included in the CNH 5 years plan for deep-water license rounds in the Salinas Basin. A complete processed dataset will be available in February 2016.
The seismic vessel is currently acquiring regional lines for the Maximus survey outside the bid round blocks.
Tom Wolden, CEO said: “We are very pleased to be able to make our new data available to the oil industry ahead of the first deep-water license round in the Salinas Basin offshore Mexico expected to be announced during the Q3 2016. Our modern, high quality seismic 2D data covers all 6 bid round blocks in the Salinas Basin and ties 20 wells, providing companies the possibility to extrapolate important well information into the deep-water bid round blocks.”
