NABIRM 2D Seismic Survey underway
Privately-held corporation, NABIRM Energy Services earlier this week announced that in conjunction with its partner NAMCOR (10%), will commence with a 2D Seismic Survey.
In early January, the Chief Executive Officer of NABIRM, Olayinka Arowolo said, “the purpose of this survey is to investigate the subsea geology to determine [the morphology] the presence of oil and gas prospects.” In their latest development, NABIRM said, the survey will include Gravity and Magnetics Data acquisition on Block 2113A located in the Walvis Basin, offshore Namibia. “The 2D Seismic, Gravity and Magnetics campaign has been contracted to BGP International, who will acquire the Data using the 3D vessel M/V BGP Pioneer just off a similar 2D campaign for ION Geophysical offshore Namibia,” NABIRM added. The project scope which consists of a FIRM 684 full fold km of 2D marine seismic data acquisition shall include renewed Gravity and Magnetics Data acquisition in the Block. “The objective is to produce a high resolution and accurate image of the sub surface features to further enhance our understanding and evaluation of the identified existing plays and highly promising targets,” added NABIRM. Meanwhile to a notice to mariners, NABIRM said, the survey vessel M/V BGP Pioneer will be conducting the survey and will tow 1 cable 9 km long and 8m below sea surface.
