Geoscience company CGG announced Thursday that it has been awarded an extensive multi-client program by the Instituto Nacional de Petroleo (INP) to acquire seismic data offshore Mozambique.
The multi-survey program is designed to improve industry insight into the region’s geology and provide oil and gas companies with a greater level of understanding of the country’s prospectivity.
The program includes a 2D survey of over 4,069 miles in the offshore Rovuma basin, including blocks R5-A, R5-B and R5-C, and a large 3D survey over the Beira High in the Zambezi Delta. The 3D survey is expected to be up to 15,444 square miles, subject to pre-commitment. It will cover blocks Z5-C and Z5-D and surrounding open acreage in this deltaic area which is believed to be prospective. CGG has also been awarded an onshore airborne gravity and magnetic survey in the Southern Mozambique Basin.
“CGG has a long track record of delivering successful multi-client programs in the Sub-Saharan Africa region and this award underlines the extent to which our reputation for high-quality services and delivering value to our clients is recognized not just by oil and gas companies but also by national governments,” said Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO of CGG.
“As our first multi-client projects in Mozambique, these awards fit well with CGG’s long-term multi-client strategy to provide our clients with the most advanced understanding of the subsurface across the world’s key basins. The 5th License Round award process undertaken by the INP in 2015 saw a high level of interest in the Zambezi region and we believe our multi-client projects will highlight the exploration upside potential,” he added.
