These surveys provide extensive coverage in one of the company’s focus areas. Eco Atlantic is also the operator of its Cooper Block, where, in partnership with Tullow Kudu Limited, it is currently running a 1,097-kilometre 3D programme with PGS Geophysical, as announced October 16, 2014.

“This has been a busy and constructive year for Eco Atlantic and its partners, and fits well with our strategy and analysis of the Walvis Basin,” said Colin Kinley, Eco Atlantic chief operating officer.

“The Cooper 3D programme is progressing well and we hope to complete with 1,097 square kilometre programme by mid-November. This newly acquired 2D programme on Sharon was shot previously and the data quality looks good from our review of the lines.

“We are advancing our interpretation and knowledge of the basin as a result of previous wells drilled in the region and the availability of good quality information. By season’s end this year, we also hope to shoot an additional 1,000 kilometres of new 2D data on our Guy Block. With our knowledgeable partners, we are advancing our understanding of this play.  We have steadily progressed with our exploration and interpretation and continue to build confidence in defining the potential of our licenses in this prospective oil play, which should assist in attracting additional partners.”
