CAMAC Energy has completed its onshore seismic acquisition on blocks L-1B and L-16 in Kenya.
The 2D seismic programme was conducted by BGP Kenya and covers 700 kilometres on L-1B and 325km on L-16.
The objective of the acquisition is to identify potential exploration targets in the Paleozoic, Jurassic, Cretaceous, and Middle to Lower Tertiary sections, which are known to be oil-bearing in the East Africa region.
The seismic survey, paired with the previously completed airborne gravity and magnetic surveys, will be used to help identify potential drilling targets on the block.
Segun Omidele, Senior Vice President of Exploration and Production, said: “The preliminary results from data processing in the field are encouraging.
“These seismic surveys are fundamental to advancing our onshore Kenya work program and our understanding of the resource potential on these blocks and will help us determine potential locations to begin our exploration drilling.”
