Simba Energy Inc. confirmed the successful completion of the first phase of field work on Block 2A onshore Kenya where the company currently holds a 100 % interest in the production-sharing contract for this concession.
The passive seismic data collected from 218 listening stations covered the company's existing three leads. Data results obtained were reported by GeoDynamics Worldwide as being of high quality and expected to correlate well with existing 2-D seismic during processing. The final report and interpretations are expected soon.
Additionally, the company carried out the collection of 675 geochemical samples on Block 2A. These will be analyzed with results being incorporated into the Block 2A geological interpretation.
At the strongest lead, with four-way closure already confirmed by reprocessed 2-D seismic, the passive seismic survey's preliminary field data considerably increased the exploration potential and resulted in the decision to infill the listening pattern. The company's technical team will now follow up with targeted 2-D and or 3-D seismic programs in order to better determine the location of its first exploration well on this concession.
Simba's chief technical officer and director, James Dick, remarked, "After the passive seismic data has been processed and interpreted, our plan had been to shoot up to 500 km of 2-D seismic. Now a smaller amount of 2-D and or 3-D seismic is required to locate the first well. This passive seismic survey has accelerated the exploration phase on Block 2A and has moved us closer to a drilling program.”
