PGS Provides First Data of New Ghana MegaSurvey

Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) has made available first data of the MegaSurvey targeting the extensive prospective acreage of the Ghanaian offshore area.

The Ghana MegaSurvey consists of 24 000 sq. km of 3D seismic data extending from the prolific Tano Basin in the west, through the Salt Pond Basin and into the relatively frontier Keta Basin to the east.

The Ghana MegaSurvey covers the proven Upper Cretaceous oil play as targeted in the Jubilee and TEN fields.

Multiple undrilled stacked turbidite channel and fan systems can be delineated using PGS MegaSurvey data.

Exploration is now pushing into the eastern frontier areas of the Saltpond and Keta Basins, expected to contain Tertiary and Upper Cretaceous potential.

MegaSurveys are regional scale, merged post-stack datasets consisting of multiple surveys that will be rebinned to a common grid and then matched to produce a phase-balanced and uniformly-scaled contiguous regional volume.

PGS MegaSurvey data highlights the excellent structural and stratigraphic trapping potential in the Ghanaian offshore. The regional nature of the data allows the tectonic and basin development to be fully explored leading to a greater understanding of existing and potential petroleum systems.

The Ghana MegaSurvey now completes the PGS coverage of the West Africa Transform Margin, providing the foundation for successful exploration.

6th Offshore Well Intervention Conference Gulf of Mexico

The Offshore Well Intervention Gulf of Mexico conference (OWI GOM) is returning to Houston, Texas for its sixth year on Wednesday 20 – Thursday 21 November.

Featuring Anadarko, BP, Shell, Chevron, BHGE and Oceaneering, the conference aims to help operators transition to the latest compliance updates, WI systems and business models that enhance safety, quicken well access and improve commerciality.

Across two days, more than 200 delegates, 15 exhibitors and 30 speakers will network together and create solutions to some of the most pertinent industry challenges right now, through a conference programme focused on:

  1. Clarifying compliance updates
  2. Quicker well access and safer well control
  3. ​Understanding HPHT well intervention (systems)
  4. Forecasting well intervention activity, discussing new commercial models and comparing platform options
  5. Best practice riserless well intervention
  6. ​The latest well intervention equipment
