Geophysical services company BGP Marine announced last week the beginning of a 2D multi-client survey, offshore Cuba, after signing a 2D multi-client contract with Cuba-Petroleo Company (CUPET).
The project comprises 25,000 km of 2D long-offset, high resolution, broadband seismic and gravity data. The survey specifically targets the Cuba Economic Zone of the Gulf of Mexico areas.
The geophysical company said the acquisition is carried out using the seismic vessel BGP Pioneer and the final data will be available in 4Q 2017. The bid round will be followed after the completion of the survey.
The underexplored offshore Cuba contains large areas of open acreage. The presence of an active hydrocarbon system is indicated by oil and gas shows in some of the wells.
According to BGP, the survey has been designed to acquire data that will be fundamental in assisting the interpretation of the geology in the offshore Cuba, and the identification of prospective structural and stratigraphic trends that can be used for regional evaluation and future detailed seismic survey designs.
