Neptune Energy completes survey offshore Egypt

Neptune strength announced the hit of the entirety of an ocean backside node (on) multiclient survey in the north west el Amal block, offshore Egypt. Turning in promising consequences for in addition evaluation.

The task, funded by Neptune, became completed by means of WesternGeco. The seismic and geophysical data answers department of Schlumberger. Beneath a settlement with the Egyptian popular petroleum company (EPC). Sponsored by way of the Egyptian ministry for petroleum and mineral sources. WesternGeco received the survey the use of 1/3-celebration vessels.

The surveys hired a revolutionary on era to overcome the mission of acquiring advanced imaging. Within the complex salt geometries of the Gulf of Suez. And the maximum distinct survey of the block for the reason that first acquisition in 1988. Offering in-depth facts set for processing, photo analysis, and planning for capacity exploratory wells inside the future.

The north west el Amal offshore concession covers 365 km and is located in the important part of the Gulf of Suez. Approximately forty-two km south of ras Gharib and one zero five km north of Hurghada. Neptune becomes provided the exploration license in February last year. Together with the acquisition of 100 km2 of 3D seismic records.

Egyptian popular petroleum enterprise

Egypt coping with the director, Gamal Kassem stated: “Egypt is essential for Neptune and we are pleased to build on our robust relationships. With the ministry of petroleum and Egyptian popular petroleum enterprise.

“The safe and successful finishing touch of the seismic acquisition is a critical success. And is testament to the cautious planning and professional execution by means of Neptune, epic, and WesternGeco.”

The task worried placing huge numbers of self-sustaining sensors at the seabed to gather seismic statistics, then retrieving them for analysis. The process acquires greater targeted facts than popular technology and is much less touchy to climate conditions that can impact traditional seismic survey vessels.

Neptune’s VP exploration & development, gro harvest introduced: “it’s very interesting to have been worried inside the on the seismic survey, the primary time the era has been deployed in Egyptian waters. given the geographically-diverse as well as nature of our worldwide portfolio, Neptune is familiar with working with revolutionary virtual and subsurface technologies to address a diffusion of geological demanding situations.

Obtaining subsalt imaging is specifically hard and the on era became well-proper for this motive. The following step is to research the data which has substantially advanced. Our understanding of the block and will assist our destiny plans as well as which include potential exploratory wells.”
