ERHC Energy Inc. has completed a major 2D seismic acquisition program of Block 11A in the Republic of Kenya. BGP acquired seismic data over approximately 621 line miles (1,000 line kilometers) on behalf of ERHC and its operating partner, CEPSA Kenya Limited (a wholly owned affiliate of Compania Espanola de Petroleos, S.A.U. (CEPSA)), completing the work program requirements for the initial two-year exploration period under terms of the Block 11A Production Sharing Contract.
The seismic survey, paired with the structural mapping of prospective basins from a Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry (FTG) survey completed last winter, will help to identify potential drilling targets in Block 11A.
"Interpretation of the seismic data is not yet complete, but we can say we are encouraged," said Dr. Peter Thuo, general manager of ERHC Kenya Ltd.
