Merged 3D surveys offshore West Africa identify new petroleum potential ///

The west coast of Sub-Saharan Africa has been an area of focus for hydrocarbon exploration since the 1950s. World-class discoveries, such as Bonga field in Nigeria and Girassol field in Angola, illustrate the major petroleum systems operating within this region. The 2006 discovery of Brazil’s Tupi field and subsequent related presalt discoveries have further increased interest in the presalt analogs of Gabon and Angola. With increasing exploration investment in West Africa, there is greater demand for high-quality, detailed regional seismic data to assist in the exploration, understanding and derisking of these prolific hydrocarbon provinces.
