Namibe Basin - Angola - 2014
Pre and postsalt prospectivity revealed with GeoStreamer 3D acquisition in this frontier basin
Over 11 100 sq. km of broadband GeoStreamer 3D data targeting a presalt rift basin over blocks 27, 28, 29 and 11 highlighting the excellent hydrocarbon potential of the basin.
Exploration targets include thick syn-rift sediments hosted in tilted fault blocks with potential sag phase carbonates which lie beneath a well-defined salt layer. Halokenesis leads to excellent postsalt structural trapping potential.
Dualsensor 3D GeoStreamer acquisition combined with modern depth processing workflows are key to identify and unlock the pre and postsalt plays.
