Polarcus has, on behalf of Erin Energy, completed acquisition of a new 3D seismic survey off the coast of The Gambia.
Polarcus was contracted by the Erin Energy to carry out the survey using the Polarcus Alima, 12-streamer 3D/4D seismic vessel.
The survey covered approximately 1,613 square kilometres on Erin Energy’s A2 and A5 blocks.
Erin Energy said it will now begin processing and interpretation of the data, with results expected to be available during the second quarter of 2016.
Segun Omidele, Chief Operating Officer of Erin Energy, said: “We are pleased to report that the acquisition has been completed on time and within budget. We look forward to receiving the processed seismic data, which will allow us to build upon our understanding of the prolific plays in this emerging basin, and will assist our team in determining exploration activities on the blocks. We would like to thank Polarcus and our contractors for their professional and efficient work.”
