France’s CGG announced that the final processed depth volumes from its recent 3D BroadSeis multi-client survey in Gabon’s South Basin are now open for license, informed Ecofin Agency.

As technical consultant to the Gabonese Republic’s Ministry of Petroleum and Hydrocarbons, CGG acquired the broadband seismic survey of over 25,000 sq.km to support Gabon’s 11th licensing round, Globe Newswire reported.

The seismic survey is part of an integrated geoscience program that will also include reviewed, resolved and interpreted well and geological data, in order to provide a petroleum systems evaluation supported by regional interpretations and reports.

CGG’s CEO, Jean-Georges Malcor, said.: “The Gabon deep offshore is one of the last underexplored areas of the West Africa Atlantic Margin. The final data sets we have just delivered from our survey show a spectacular uplift in subsalt imaging. We believe these images will revolutionize the industry’s understanding of deepwater Gabon and be a valuable resource for clients to de-risk and unlock the potential of this promising exploration arena.”
