The fast-track 3D seismic data from CGG’s recent Mozambique multi-client survey in the outer Zambezi Delta Basin is now available for license, the geoscience company announced during Africa Oil Week.

The data covers a 15,400 km2 area over blocks Z5-C and Z5-D and surrounding open acreage. It was acquired as part of a multi-client program agreed between CGG and Mozambique’s Instituto Nacional de Petroleo (INP) in 2017.

Interested international oil companies can view the high-end data set in CGG data rooms in anticipation of the country’s 2019 licensing round.

CGG said final PSDM deliverables will be released in Q4 2019 and be complemented by a JumpStart integrated geoscience package as well as a geological regional study (2017 East Africa Robertson Study), and the Robertson New Ventures Suite of exploration screening tools.

“Our comprehensive suite of geoscience products for Mozambique will bring the industry new insight into the hydrocarbon prospectivity of this exciting new exploration area,” said Luc Schlumberger, EVP, Multi-Client & New Ventures, CGG.

“The fast-track data has already revealed key details of how the prospective reservoirs of the thick Zambezi Basin sediments are affected by the nearby Beira High. This valuable insight will help exploration companies prepare their strategy for the upcoming licensing round.”
