PGS, provider of seismic images and 3D data announced that early-out PSTM products are now available from PGS’ latest MultiClient 3D survey in the Namibe Basin, Angola. The new coverage over Blocks 29, 30, 44, and 45 brings fresh understanding for deeper water exploration.

The latest ANG Namibe 2020 3D GeoStreamer dataset targets over 14 000 sq. km in the Namibe Basin, complementing the ANG Namibe 2014 3D survey and NAM 2019 3D survey across the border in Namibia. PGS now offers a continuous coverage in this frontier region, with over 34 000 sq. km of high-quality broadband seismic data, tying into important exploration and ODP wells.

Final PSTM products will be available in Q1 2021 and final PSDM data in Q3 2021. Regional GeoStreamer 3D data incorporating FWI velocity model building will better image structures and faults and help to establish target plays in the southern Namibe Basin.

The new 3D data delivers improved signal-to-noise ratio. This enables mapping in this frontier area of a basin framework and Cretaceous through to Tertiary play elements in order to identify basin sweet spots in the syn and post-rift sections, derisking further exploration.
