EGY 2018 2D GeoStreamer®

Ongoing 2D GeoStreamer acquisition offshore Egypt
Website Map for Survey MC2D-EGY2018
2D seismic survey further expanding our extensive coverage across this frontier area with tie lines to the East.
Potential play types: An extension of Pliocene sandstones from the prolific Nile Delta province; pre-salt carbonate build ups with similar seismic characteristics as the Zohr discovery; and an extension of the onshore Western Desert proven Jurassic/Cretaceous oil and gas play into the shelf area.
GeoStreamer acquisition provides broadband data rich in both low and high-frequency information that can be reliably used for structural interpretation and rock property analysis. PSDM products will be available for accurate imaging of sub-salt reservoir targets.
