Serica Energy has successfully completed the acquisition of 4,180 sq km (1,614 sq miles) of 3D seismic data in its Luderitz basin blocks, offshore Namibia.
The survey, conducted by Serica on behalf of its partners in the license, BP, Namcor, and IEPL, commenced May 10 and took four and a half months to complete, according to a news release. The survey was undertaken by Polarcus Seismic Ltd. using the 10-streamer seismic vessel Polarcus Nadia.
The participants in the license are Serica Energy Namibia B.V. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Serica), operator, 55%; Exploration (Luderitz Basin) Ltd. (a wholly owned subsidiary of BP), 30%; National Petroleum Corp. of Namibia (Pty) Ltd., 10%; and Indigenous Energy (Pty) Ltd., 5%.
“The completion of this extensive survey, only nine months after the award of the license, is an important step in the exploration of this largely unexplored basin,” said Tony Craven Walker, Serica's chairman and interim chief executive. “[The data] is now being processed fully to delineate the prospect and to identify additional prospects associated with locally present channel sands. Initial results are expected to be available around the end of the year and will be amalgamated with regional geological information prior to determining a forward drilling program.”
