PGC completes Walvis Basin shoot offshore Namibia for Eco Atlantic
The survey was executed by PGS Geophysical using its high resolution GeoStreamer technology

The survey was executed by PGS Geophysical using its high resolution GeoStreamer technology. The company has also contracted PGS to begin processing the 2D data immediately.

“The Guy Block in the Walvis basin is a strategic asset for Eco and our partners, Azinam and Namcor,” said Colin Kinley, chief operating officer of Eco Atlantic, the operator of the block.

“This 1,000 kilometre 2D programme has allowed us to further focus our exploration and add to our existing seismic database on this block. Our detailed analysis, assisted by the expert staff at Azinam, combined with the results of recent drilling in the region, has given us a new and more focused perspective of where to shoot our 3D survey.

“Importantly, we received approval to tie this survey into the recently drilled wells of our neighbours, HRT, enabling both HRT and ourselves to better understand the basin. We engaged the same ship and crew to complete this work and we benefited from Azinam’s field management. Our confidence in establishing a resource is increasing as we progress the exploration.”
