Republic of Guinea 3D GeoStreamer

PGS expands its footprint within the MSGBC Basin with a new MultiClient 3D GeoStreamer survey
Website Map for Survey MC3D Guinea Phase1
New MC3D acquisition covers blocks A4 and A5. The full suite of products will offer both immediate and long-term value in the subsurface analysis of the region.
Multiple plays are expected to be imaged with a focus on carbonate bank (shelf edge), shallow water delta plays and deepwater channel systems. A working petroleum system has been proven in an underexplored area of the prospective MSGBC basin.
Data acquisition direction is perpendicular to both the present-day shelf edge and the underlying regional subsurface structures, enabling optimal illumination of exploration targets. Final processing includes full-fidelity prestack time and depth migrated products.
