Erin Energy has successfully completed acquisition of a new 3D seismic survey off the coast of The Gambia.
The survey was carried out by the Polarcus Alima, an ultra-modern 12 streamer 3D/4D seismic vessel. The survey covered approximately 1,613 sq km on Erin Energy’s A2 and A5 blocks.
The company will now commence processing and interpretation of the data, with results expected to be available during the second quarter of 2016.
Erin’s recently appointed new chief operating officer Segun Omidele, said: “We look forward to receiving the processed seismic data, which will allow us to build upon our understanding of the prolific plays in this emerging basin, and will assist our team in determining exploration activities on the blocks.”
Erin Energy is operator of the A2 and A5 blocks with 100% interest. The A2 and A5 blocks are located approximately 45km offshore The Gambia and are on-trend with the recent FAN-1 and SNE-1 hydrocarbon discoveries offshore Senegal by Cairn, Conocoand FAR.
