  • Building understanding of offshore Congo regional geology through 3D seismic

    R. Coole, S. Baer and A. Nzoussi

    Since 2007, PGS has been building a regional, multi-client 3D database across offshore West Africa with total coverage of over 150,000 sq km. In partnership with national governments, PGS individual surveys and countrywide surveys stretch from Angola to Nigeria, and allow for a regional overview of subsurface geology, which forms the major hydrocarbon accumulations along the West African margin. In 2013, PGS, in association with SNPC, completed the integration of the Congo MegaSurvey, (Fig. 1) into the West African database and began interpretation immediately. The results of this survey are discussed in this article.
