FAR Wins 3D Seismic Off Kenya's Coast

A contract for a 3D seismic survey over some of the world's most keenly sought petroleum exploration acreage off the coast of Kenya has been awarded by Australian listed petroleum exploration company, FAR Ltd.

FAR Ltd's L6 permit off the Kenya coast lies in the Lamu Basin, north of recent, world scale, natural gas discoveries totalling around 100 trillion cubic feet off the coasts of Mozambique and Tanzania.

FAR Ltd managing director, Cath Norman said, "Drilling in the Rovuma Basin off the coast of Mozambique and Tanzania, has so far achieved a near perfect success rate."

"Much of that success has stemmed from the use of modern, high quality, 3D seismic data which is able to provide quality images of potential structures deep beneath the surface."

"FAR has mapped a total of seven prospects in the L6 permit which we aim to better define using the 3D seismic and greatly enhance our chance of success in ahead of drilling next year."
