CGG Mozambique Seismic Data Available for Licence.

The final 3D PSDM seismic dataset from CGG’s recent 15,400 km2 multi-client survey of the outer Zambezi Delta in the Mozambique Basin is now available for licence. The data over blocks Z5-C and Z5-D and surrounding open acreage is part of a multi-client programme agreed between CGG and Mozambique’s Instituto Nacional de Petroleo.

  • Final Kirchhoff PSDM data identifies key stratigraphic intervals and reveals the complex deep marine turbiditic system and the complex internal architecture of the Beira High of the Zambezi Delta (image courtesy of CGG Multi-Client).

The final PSDM data identifies key stratigraphic intervals for a better understanding of the petroleum system and, in conjunction with the high-resolution gravity and magnetic data, brings new information on the basin morphology and its evolution. CGG’s advanced imaging workflow, including full-waveform inversion, reveals a high level of detail, such as the complex deep marine turbiditic system and associated frontal splays, and the complex faulting pattern and internal architecture of the Beira High.

A complementary Mozambique JumpStart™ package is also available. This integrated geoscience analysis of all the regional data available frames it in its geological context in an easily accessible format. Data from 11 wells has been analysed in detail alongside the new seismic interpretation, which was supported by hydrocarbon seep identification, high-resolution potential fields data and the full suite of Robertson multi-client geological datasets.

Oil Crisis 2020: Prospects for the Near Future

We all are concerned about the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the resultant economic crisis. The oil market crash of 2020 is a visible indication of this crisis. When will this end? This question is on everyone’s mind, but ‘when’ is also related to ‘how’. Here we examine some fundamental factors, trends, and scenarios.
