Rockhopper, Argos Enter Seismic Acquisition Program for Falklands

Rockhopper Exploration formally signed a contract for marine seismic acquisition services with Polarcus Limited for the use of the MV Polarcus Asima seismic vessel. Under the contract, Rockhopper will acquire a 3D seismic survey covering licenses PL 032 and PL 033 that were not previously defined by 3D, as well as adjacent areas. The seismic survey should begin by early January 2011. A separate contract to process the acquired data will be issued shortly. Monarch Geophysical Services Limited was retained to provide specialist acquisition and processing supervision throughout the 3D seismic project. The main objective of this 3D seismic acquisition program is to define the aerial extent of the Sea Lion fan, and other areas and play types within PL 032, PL 033 and adjacent areas, to help identify future prospects, stated Sam Moody, Chief Executive of Rockhopper Exploration.
