PGS completes coverage of West African transform margin with Cote d’Ivoire data

oil and gas rigIn partnership with PetroCi and Direction Générale des Hydrocarbures, PGS has completed phase two of the Côte d’Ivoire MegaSurvey, adding 9,897 sq km of 3D and 24,632 km 2D in the Tano Basin

Data from phases 1 and 2 have been matched, merged, and re-binned onto a common grid, to create a single, continuous 32,310 sq km volume of full-stack data in the time domain.  

The latest Cote d’Ivoire MegaSurvey spans the western extension of the prolific Tano Basin and covers two recently spudded exploration wells Baleine-1X (Eni) and Obunu-1X (Total). 

The MegaSurvey is also along-strike to the recent Eni Eban-1X nearfield discovery, which is reported to have found light oil in an 80m-thick section of Cenomanian sandstones.  

Numerous Upper Cretaceous turbidite channel and fan systems present in the eastern deepwater area are also revealed on the new coverage.

The new MegaSurvey coverage allows the entire West African transform margin to be analysed in a regional context. PGS 3D data along the margin covers existing discoveries, farm-in opportunities, and open blocks available for licensing.

A special promotional package is available that allows exploration for analogs, identification of new prospects, and detailed play analysis from shelf to deep water, along the entire margin.

Five major regional horizons have been tied to wells and interpreted allowing field-scale geological understanding to be placed into a basin-wide context and open acreage opportunities to be assessed with confidence.
