Global Petroleum has entered into a contract with Seabird Exploration of Norway to acquire 834 km of 2D seismic data covering Global’s operated block, PEL 0029, in Namibia.
The survey has been designed as an infill programme with the aim of providing better delineation of a large, multi-level, dip closed prospect, Gemsbok, which has been mapped in the south eastern portion of the Global acreage.
The new 2D survey is expected to clarify the nature and extent of Gemsbok.
In addition, the survey has been specifically designed to improve resolution of the deeper syn-rift section adjacent to the Gemsbok structure, as well as to provide a more accurate understanding of the deeper sedimentary sequence where it is believed potential source rocks are likely to be present.
It is expected that the survey will start towards the end of June/early July and take approximately two weeks to complete.
