Deep-water 3D seismic survey

Hydro International – 

Hyperdynamics Corporation has started its deep water 3D seismic survey off the coast of the Republic of Guinea.

Using the survey vessel Oceanic Endeavour, seismic contractor CGGVeritas will acquire 3D seismic data in a deep water area covering approximately 4,000 square kilometres in Hyperdynamics’ oil and gas concession offshore Guinea in West Africa.

After it completes the data acquisition phase of the project, CGGVeritas will also process the data.

The survey area is located just southwest of and adjacent to the 3D survey obtained by Hyperdynamics in 2010.

The primary goal of this new survey is to investigate multiple possible deep water submarine fans in the equatorial Atlantic margin that were identified from a 2D seismic survey acquired in 2009.

Ray Leonard, Hyperdynamics CEO, commented that the deep water 3D survey will utilise CGGVeritas’ BroadSeis broadband solution, which is expected provide a clearer and more detailed image of the subsurface.
