ION Geophysical has expanded its 3D multi-client reimaging program offshore Mexico.
Based on the success of both the Campeche and Mexican Ridges 3D reimaging programs, ION is extending its data in a lesser explored area further to the north, the company informed.
The Perdido South 3D reimaging program consists of over 16,000 sq km across six surveys in the southern part of the Perdido area, believed to have prolific hydrocarbon potential.
“We are pleased to be collaborating on another large project offshore Mexico, where we anticipate strong client demand in upcoming license rounds,” said Brian Hanson, ION’s president and CEO. “Our approach to reimage the raw data using the most advanced imaging technology into a seamless data set will jump start exploration efforts in this largely untested basin.”
The data will be delivered in phases over the next 10 months, with initial deliverables available in May, to accelerate subsurface knowledge and inform upcoming bid round decisions.
