Onshore Lower Congo 2D Seismic
In cooperation with the Angolan Oil & Gas Agency (ANPG) and in partnership with Geopartners, Trois offers recent 2D Seismic data over the Lower Congo Basin onshore.
The seismic data was acquired in 2007, 2008 and 2010 for Sonangol EP and consists of approximately 1,700 m of 2D Data covering Blocks CON1-CON7.
The onshore discoveries in the Lower Congo Basin came during the height of exploration activity between 1967 and 1992. The early onshore effort resulted in finding some 13 commercial oil fields (one gas field), with reserve sizes varying between 5 and 40 mmbbls of oil. These discoveries all have reservoirs in post-salt drift deposits, primarily Albo-Cenomanian dolomitic limestones of the Pinda formation.
There is much remaining potential to be provided by deeper targets in both the rift and transitional phase reservoirs, and in salt flank targets in the withdrawal grabens. The application of advanced seismic processing and drilling technologies can provide significant new opportunities for hydrocarbon discoveries.
ANPG, the Angolan National Agency for Oil&Gas plans to make available 7 blocks of the Lower Congo onshore in scheduled bidding rounds between 2020 and 2023.
