Chariot Oil & Gas Limited has started a 2D seismic survey of approximately 1,700km in the Central Blocks 2312 & 2412A offshore Namibia. The survey is conducted by SeaBird Exploration.
Chariot has said it has agreed with its partners to initially carry out a 2D survey, which will infill an existing grid of data in order to gain a better understanding of the regional prospectivity of this large licence area (which covers approximately 16,800km2).
This should enable the Chariot to optimise the design of the location and size of the 3D seismic program required as a commitment during this current phase of exploration. The survey is anticipated to take approximately two weeks to acquire.
It is understood that the Northern Explorer vessel is being used for the operation.
