Côte d’Ivoire - 2018
Multi Azimuth survey over open block CI-706 providing increased resolution and sharper imaging
Advances in processing technology and the generation of a MAZ image is believed to overwrite previous exploration efforts and provide a new insight in this area already of interest to West Africa Transform Margin explorers.
Syn-rift Aptian/Albian transitional marine sandstones within a prominent structural target and deepwater Upper Cretaceous channels and fans are key play types in this prolific region. Enhanced imaging in this new survey improves understanding of these play types for the entire surrounding region.
New N-S acquisition covers the majority of CI-706 and will be processed with underlying existing (re-processed) East-West acquired data. Improved imaging of the stratigraphic pinch-outs traps will reduce risks associated with hydrocarbon migration and trap integrity.
