France’s CGG has signed a multi-client data agreement with Mozambique’s Instituto Nacional de Petroleo (INP) for a seismic survey in the Zambezi Delta, covering blocks Z5-C and Z5-D and surrounding open acreage.
CGG will start acquisition of a new multi-client survey of up to 40,000 km2 of 3D data over the Beira High in the Zambezi Delta.
In a press statement, CGG said as part of the agreement it will include fast-track PreSTM, Final PreSTM and PreSDM. The seismic data will be imaged with the 3D broadband deghosting and advanced demultiple, velocity modeling and imaging techniques, including Full-Waveform Inversion.
Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: “This agreement marks the beginning of a fruitful partnership with the INP to promote the potential of the Zambezi basin and other regions of Mozambique. Our advanced 3D seismic and integrated geoscience program will enable oil companies to confidently de-risk this exciting new exploration area and accelerate development of the country’s resources.”
