Herodotus/West Egypt Shelf - Egypt - 1999-2007

Egypt Legacy Data 2D

Reprocessed Legacy 2D data complementing the new PGS seismic survey in west Egypt
Website Map for Survey Egypt Legacy Data 2D
The new and legacy 2D seismic data together cover a frontier area of more than 80 000 sq. km. PGS' geophysical data will support the licensing round anticipated in 2017.
Pliocene sandstone play potential extends from the Nile Delta with potential for Zohr-type pre-salt carbonate plays in the Herodotus Basin in addition to the pre-salt sandstone play. The Shelf area is an extension of the onshore Western Desert Basin with a proven petroleum system and oil play.
Rejuvenation of Legacy 2D data through PGS' full integrity broadband processing. Both PSTM and PSDM products are available.
