PGS completes Kwanza shoot

This MC3D Kwanza Shelf survey complements earlier PGS acquisition, carried out in 2019.
This MC3D Kwanza Shelf survey complements earlier PGS acquisition, carried out in 2019.

PGS has completed the acquisition of 3D seismic on Angola’s Kwanza shelf, which will be used in the country’s 2021 licence round.

The seismic company said coverage on Blocks 6, 7 and 8 – and surrounding areas of the Kwanza – stood at 8,300 square km. The shoot, known as MC3D, complements previous seismic carried out by PGS in 2019.

Fast-track data from MC3D is now available. PGS said the combination of GeoStreamer technology with modern technologies should allow companies to unlock plays in the Kwanza’s shallow water blocks.

“High-density GeoStreamer acquisition combined with the latest processing and imaging technology, provide a detailed view of the hydrocarbon potential of the Kwanza Shelf area. This high-quality dataset will allow for lead and prospect generation, attribute analysis and reservoir-scale evaluations,” said PGS’ new ventures manager Africa Christine Roche.

PGS’ work on imaging Kwanza opportunities comes shortly after Angola’s Agência Nacional de Petróleo, Gás e Biocombustíveis (ANPG) announced a public tender seeking a company to evaluate and audit Angola’s reserves and contingent resources.

Proposals must be submitted by the end of April 21. Work should take 11 months, the agency said in a statement, and would be carried out at its facilities in Luanda.

Plans for the 2020 round are moving ahead, with ANPG in the process of choosing a data supplier for the offering, which will focus on the Lower Congo and onshore Kwanza basins. The 2019 round opened in October and closed in November, with contracts on three licences signed in January this year.
