AUSTRALIA-LISTED WHL Energy has signed an agreement with seismic players Fugro Data Services and Geomahakarsa for additional 2D data covering its acreage off the Republic of Seychelles.
WHL said it had enlisted the duo to shoot a further 887km of 2D seismic over the Creole lead, in Area 3, based on the results of initial data.
Fugro and Geomahakarsa recently wrapped up a 17,000km 2D shoot off Seychelles which included 7200km over WHL’s acreage.
WHL chief executive David Rowbottam said the infill data would remove remaining uncertainties about existing leads and assist the company in identifying suitable drilling targets.
“By taking advantage of the seismic vessel in the area, WHL’s Seychelles exploration program is accelerated and the necessary infill seismic data is acquired cost effectively,” he said.
“This is another important step in our plans to farm-down interests in our Seychelles project and will remove the requirement for additional seismic acquisition prior to farm-down of the acreage.”
