US-based oil and gas explorer CAMAC Energy has announced the completion of its 2D seismic acquisitions on Block L-1B and Block L-16 located onshore Kenya
According to CAMAC Energy, the 2D seismic programme was conducted by BGP Kenya Limited and covers approximately 700 km on Block L-1B and 325 km on Block L-16.
Segun Omidele, senior vice-president of exploration and production at CAMAC Energy, said, “The preliminary results from data processing in the field are encouraging. These seismic surveys are fundamental to advancing our onshore Kenya work programme and our understanding of the resource potential on these blocks and will help us determine potential locations to begin our exploration drilling.”
The objective of the acquisition is to identify oil-bearing exposures of rocks in the East Africa region, which includes the Paleozoic, Jurassic and Cretaceous, added Omidele.
The seismic survey paired with the previously completed airborne gravity and magnetic surveys will be used to help identify potential drilling targets on the blocks, noted the oil and gas explorer.
