Spectrum in 3D seismic shoot off Gabon

Spectrum has started the first of a series of 3D multi-client seismic acquisition programs offshore Gabon.

Spectrum said on Monday that the programs are located in under-explored areas over shallow water open blocks.

These blocks will be made available through future shallow water license rounds. Spectrum’s new 3D broadband seismic will image high potential pre- and post-salt play types.

Fully processed and depth migrated data will be available for the upcoming license rounds, enabling immediate exploration activity when the blocks are awarded, Spectrum said.

On December 31, 2016, Spectrum began the acquisition of the 10,000 square kilometer Gryphon 3D survey in southern Gabon.

Spectrum says the survey has attracted strong industry funding and is expected to be completed in the early third quarter of 2017. A further 5,000 square kilometer 3D survey over open acreage in Northern Gabon and an additional 3,000 square kilometer 3D survey offshore Central Gabon will begin during the first and second quarters of 2017, respectively.

In addition to the new seismic data, Spectrum already holds over 20,000 kilometers of 2D seismic data offshore Gabon. This data gives a regional overview and highlights key areas of exploration.

The new 3D seismic data is expected to become available toward the end of 2017 ahead of the anticipated licensing rounds.
