MC3D-EGY20-BLOCK5 3D GeoStreamer

3D GeoStreamer coverage essential for lead and prospect identification.
Website Map for Survey MC3D EGY20 BLOCK 5
3D seismic survey in the eastern part of the area following up on regional 2D in order to further assess prospectivity across Egypt's west Mediterranean offshore.
The survey covers the offshore extension of the onshore Western Desert and associated plays. The deeper water parts of the survey fall within the Herodotus Basin, but include no Messinian salt. In this area, targets are likely to be shelfal structures and possibly pinch-outs against the shelf.
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 complex reservoir targets.
