West Africa: Transform Margin MegaSurvey, a Geological Insight

Get inspired by this new perspective on the promising West Africa Transform Margin achieved through integrated interpretation of MultiClient seismic and well data.

PGS has completed a major MegaSurvey 3D/2D project covering the easternmost portion of the West Africa Transform Margin (WATM). Our regional prospectivity analysis highlights a working petroleum system that is supported by earlier discoveries.

The WATM MegaSurvey is a consistently matched and merged, fully time-migrated 3D seismic dataset covering just under 16 500 sq. km 3D and over 7 500 km of 2D data across Togo, Benin and Nigeria. The input from multiple surveys is complemented by a regional interpretation.

In addition, we have recently reprocessed the Benin Block 4 data and Nigeria Transform Margin GeoStreamer® survey; these datasets are also newly available.
