Erin Energy Corporation announced Monday that it has successfully completed the acquisition of a new 3D seismic survey offshore The Gambia.

The company contracted Polarcus to carry out the survey, which covered approximately 622 square miles of Erin’s A2 and A5 blocks. Erin Energy will now process and interpret the data, with results expected to be available during the second quarter of 2016.

Segun Omidele, chief operating officer of Erin Energy, commented in a company statement: 

“We are pleased to report that the acquisition has been completed on time and within budget. We look forward to receiving the processed seismic data, which will allow us to build upon our understanding of the prolific plays in this emerging basin, and will assist our team in determining exploration activities on the blocks. We would like to thank Polarcus and our contractors for their professional and efficient work.”

Erin Energy is the operator of, and holds a 100 percent interest in, the A2 and A5 blocks, which are located approximately 28 miles off the coast of The Gambia.
