Global Petroleum hires Seabird for Namibian seismic shoot

Global Petroleum has contracted Seabird Exploration of Norway for the acquisitions of 834 km of full fold 2D seismic data over its offshore block in Namibia.

The survey has been designed as an infill programme with the aim of providing better delineation of an extremely large, multi-level, dip closed prospect – Gemsbok -which has been mapped in the south eastern portion of the Global acreage, the company said.

The survey, expected to start by the end of June, or in early July, will be carried out over Global Petrolem’s PEL 0029 license. It will take two weeks to complete.

According to Global, which operates the block, the new 2D survey is expected significantly to clarify the nature and extent of Gemsbok.

In addition, the survey has been specifically designed to improve resolution of the deeper syn-rift section adjacent to the Gemsbok structure, as well as to provide a more accurate understanding of the deeper sedimentary sequence where it is believed potential source rocks are likely to be present, Global said.

“Global Petroleum’s technical team is both intrigued and highly encouraged by its recent work which has confirmed the Gemsbok prospect, a structural closure extending over 200 square kms. It is unusual to identify such a large, robust structure at prospective depths which does not rely on stratigraphic trapping,” Global Petroleum said.
