Falklands : FOGL Announces Operations Update - 3D Seismic Acquisition

FOGL
Announces Operations Update - 3D Seismic Acquisition



 



 



By J. Brock (FINN)



 



 



FOGL has completed a 3D
seismic survey over the Diomedea Fan.
 
The PGS M/V Ramform Sterling has
completed a 3D seismic survey over the mid Cretaceous Diomedia fan complex
within the southern area
licences. A total of 5,235
square kilometres of full fold seismic data have been acquired. The survey was
operated by Noble Energy on behalf of the Joint Venture, which includes Edison
International Spa and FOGL.



 



More 3D data were
acquired in this survey than originally anticipated. The Diomedea fan system
covers a large area and given the favourable acquisition conditions, the Joint
Venture deemed it sensible to acquire as much data as possible over prospective
areas. The survey was, however, completed within the original budget.



 



The data will now be
processed by PGS and a fast track product will be available for interpretation
in approximately four months. It is anticipated that the final processed data
will be available in the fourth quarter of 2013. The fast track data will be
used to commence prospect mapping and well planning.

Initial test lines from the survey indicate excellent data quality and imaging
of the Cretaceous target interval.



  



A second 3D seismic
survey, also using the Ramform Sterling, has just commenced. This survey will
cover
a minimum area of 1,000 square kilometres and will target a number of prospects
and leads in FOGL's southern licence area,
immediately to the
west and north-west of Borders and Southern's Darwin gas-condensate discovery
.
A further announcement regarding this survey will be made once acquisition is
completed.



  



The Joint Venture is
also currently reviewing tender offers with respect to a third 3D seismic
survey to be acquired in the northern licence area in the fourth quarter of
2013.
