Spectrum ASA: New Spectrum 2D Multi-Client Survey to Define Hydrocarbon Potential Offshore Mozambique

Spectrum announces the commencement of a 2D seismic survey offshore Mozambique on behalf of the Institute of National Petroleum (INP) and in anticipation of future license rounds.

 

This new 2D seismic programme of up to 19,000 km will be undertaken utilising a 10,000 m long offset with continuous recording to enable extended recording lengths and high fold data. It is being acquired to complement existing 2013 seismic data located in the Mozambique Channel area which is also available through Spectrum. Gravity and magnetic data will be acquired in conjunction with seismic data to allow for independent verification of structure.

 

Spectrum EVP of the Africa Region, Graham Mayhew commented, "This new Multi-Client survey will play a key role in refining our understanding of the hydrocarbon potential offshore Mozambique between the Southern Rovuma Basin and the North-East of the Zambezi Delta, and accelerate exploration in an area considered to be significantly more oil-prone. In addition the data will also provide the basis for future license rounds as planned by INP."

 

The data will be processed to generate Broadband products with first deliveries in Q3 2018. This survey will be carried out in partnership with WesternGeco and is supported by Industry funding.
