Herodotus/West Egypt Shelf - Egypt - 2016

Egypt 2016 2D GeoStreamer®

New 2D coverage to enable assessment of the petroleum systems in Egypt's West Mediterranean area
Website Map for Survey MC2D-EGY-HERODOTUS-2016
The 2D seismic survey grid covers a frontier area of more than 80 000 sq. km. The geophysical data will support the licensing round anticipated in 2017.
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 optimal broadband data. PSDM products will be available for accurate sub-salt imaging.
