Petro Matad has awarded a 2D seismic contract to Khet for its central Mongolian asset.
Khet will carry out 2,000km of 2D seismic in Blocks IV and V. The programme will commence in mid-September 2015 after mobilisation of equipment and personnel to site has been completed.
The program has been designed to infill the existing reconnaissance level and basin definition seismic grids to improve the correlation and understanding of the structural and stratigraphic architecture of the petroleum basin systems.
It will also tighten line spacing across previously identified lead and prospect trends such that drillable prospects may be adequately mapped.
It will also expand reconnaissance level and basin definition coverage into un-imaged parts of the basin to identify new lead areas, play concepts and improve resource estimations across a greater basin area.
The company said results will be integrated with existing data to generate prospects for future exploration drilling.
