PGS has 3D seismic data acquired in partnership with Agência Nacional de Petróleo, Gás e Biocombustíveis (ANPG), covering most of the available opportunities in the Angola 2021 bid round for offshore Kwanza and Lower Congo Basin.

The 2021 offshore license round seeks to award eight areas, under Angola’s Petroleum Activities Law. The PGS data library coverage uses a combination of 3D GeoStreamer technology and modern imaging techniques to unlock plays and opportunities in blocks on offer in this round.

  • Blocks 7/21 and 8/21 on Kwanza Shelf revealed in 3D GeoStreamer quality 
  • Block 16/21 in the Lower Congo Basin revealed in 3D GeoStreamer coverage
  • Block 34/21 Lower Congo Basin covered by conventional 3D data
  • MegaSurvey 3D | Regional coverage of 45 000 sq. km with information on thickness trends, structural setting, depositional environments, and play fairways (includes blocks 31/21, 32/21, 33/21)


Christine Roche, Sales Manager West Africa at PGS  said, “The proven prospectivity of the Angola offshore area has been evidenced by numerous oil and gas discoveries. PGS data and geoscience studies provide excellent coverage of the opportunities, enabling regional understanding of the hydrocarbon potential offshore Angola and supporting block-level analysis of the areas on offer. This will permit companies to gain geological understanding, derisk petroleum systems and plays, and unlock opportunities.”
