Under the terms of the contract, Desire will acquire a 3D survey over the areas of Tranches C and D, which were not previously covered by 3D, and most of Tranche F to ensure that the east flank fan play fairway has complete coverage. Additionally, the 3D survey is intended to acquire 3D data over the northern part of Tranche I and adjacent areas in the North Falkland Basin.
