Spectrum in 2D Shoot Offshore Mozambique

Spectrum has been awarded Tender Area 2 covering the southern Rovuma and north-eastern Zambezi Basins, offshore Mozambique, to undertake a long-offset Broadband 2D multi-client seismic survey.

The survey will be a variable grid with lines spaced from 10 km to 20 km, totaling in excess of 16,000 km, the company explained.

The new seismic data will image the subsurface potential in open areas of the southern Rovuma Basin and the western flanks of the Kerimbas Graben, west of the Davie Fracture Zone, revealing the prospectivity in the region.

According to the company, the survey will also aim to image the syn-rift structures and Late Cretaceous pro-delta stacked turbidite sequences in the northeast Zambezi Depression.

The Zambezi Delta exhibits complex structuration following extensive recent compressional tectonics.

Several potential source, reservoir and seal intervals have already been identified in this area. Play types include onlaps and drapes over basement highs, stratigraphic and structural traps of deep water slope channel and basin floor fan complexes, lowstand plays (both wedge and pro-delta fan), syn-rift graben hanging wall and footwall plays, and strike slip structural plays.
