NAM Deepwater 2D GeoStreamer

GeoStreamer data with GeoSource regional survey covering Namibia's deepwater blocks
Website Map for Survey MC2D NAMIBIA DEEP WATER
High quality, regional seismic data over frontier area offshore West Africa, to assist in the exploration, understanding and derisking of this potentially prolific hydrocarbon province.
Detailed images of syn-rift and post-rift structures that enable more confident identification and mapping of prospects analogous to those prolific in the South American conjugate margins. Significantly derisks exploration in a frontier area where well costs are high.
GeoStreamer with GeoSource is an acquisition-based, broadband solution that removes both the source and receiver ghosts at an early stage in the pre-processing sequence. This has advantages in subsequent processing and produces high quality prestack and post-stack data.
