Energean Completes Seismic Survey Onshore Egypt Ahead of Drilling

Energean Oil & Gas has completed a new 2D seismic survey over the West Baliana interior rift basin in the Northern region of the West Komombo-Block 3 concession area, onshore Egypt.  

The survey, which lasted three months and was conducted by Africa Geophysical Services LLC, was conducted ahead of two exploration wells that are planned for drilling within 2016. Preliminary processing results and interpretation showed “well pronounced prospective structure developments within the well identified interior rift system at the northern part of the concession,” according to a company statement from Energean.

The study over the Sin El Kaddab interior/Lacustrinal Rift System at the southern part of the concession showed a “well-developed thick sedimentary sequence, partially deeper than the adjacent oil producing Komombo rift system,” and one “large prospective structure” was seismically mapped over a deep seated paleo-Magnetic four-way dip closure.

Located in the South Central Desert in Upper Egypt, the West Komombo block covers an area of 8,088 square miles and has a geological structure similar to the neighboring Al Baraka oil field, where international oil companies have been producing hydrocarbons for several years.
