Spectrum Begins 3D Seismic Shoots Off Gabon

Spectrum, in collaboration with the Direction Generale des Hydrocarbures (DGH), has started the first of a series of 3D multi-client seismic acquisition programmes offshore Gabon.

The programmes are located in under-explored areas over shallow water open blocks. The DGH intends to make these blocks available through future shallow water license rounds.

Spectrum’s new 3D broadband seismic will image high potential pre- and post-salt play types. Fully processed and depth migrated data will be available for upcoming license rounds, Spectrum informed.

On December 31st, Spectrum started the acquisition of the 10,000 km2 Gryphon 3D survey in southern Gabon. The survey is expected to be completed early Q3 2017.

A further 5,000 km2 3D survey over open acreage in Northern Gabon, and an additional 3,000 km2 3D survey offshore Central Gabon will start during Q1 and Q2 respectively.

Gravity and magnetic data will also be acquired in conjunction with the seismic data.

The new 3D seismic data is expected to start becoming available toward the end of 2017 ahead of anticipated licensing rounds, the company added.
