Location of the West Bredasdorp and Eastern Margin survey areas offshore South Africa
CGG will commence a multi-client airborne gravity and magnetic survey offshore South Africa. The Petroleum Agency of South Africa (PASA) has authorized the program which will extend across two blocks totaling approximately 78,000 line kilometers.
The survey areas are located offshore Cape Agulhas (West Bredasdorp area) and offshore Durban (Eastern Margin area). Data acquisition will commence in January 2016 and is anticipated to take four months utilizing specialized geophysical survey aircraft.
The project has received significant prefunding from the oil industry; survey data and interpretation products will be available for licensing in mid-2016.
