Beach Energy Limited has commenced 2D seismic acquisition over its Lake Tanganyika South concession in Tanzania. The 2D seismic is being undertaken by Fugro Oceansismica and is expected to take approximately two months to acquire and seven months to process and interpret.
To undertake the seismic, a local ferry, the MV Mwongozo, was upgraded into a seismic acquisition vessel with the necessary equipment on board to quality control process the 2D seismic data after it is acquired. This will allow Beach to identify prospects and leads of further interest and run infill seismic on these leads. The infill seismic will take place after acquiring the first 746 miles (1,200 kilometers) of the survey.
