Safi Haute Mer Block, Morocco
(Click to Enlarge)
Vanco Morocco Ltd. has commenced a 700 square kilometer
3-D seismic acquisition program offshore Morocco over the deepwater Safi
Haute Mer Permit. This permit is held under a Petroleum Agreement signed
with the Government of Morocco on 24 October 2000 and has an area of
over 5 million acres.
The purpose of the seismic program is to confirm the up-dip
salt-delimited closure of a huge Jurassic prospect named Paprika. A
discovery at this location would be ideal since it could first satisfy
the Moroccan market and then be accessible to Europe via a pipeline
across Gibraltar to Spain.
Vanco has contracted the PGS Viking vessel to acquire the seismic and
expects the survey to be completed within 30 days.
