FOGL Acquiring 3D Seismic Offshore Falklands

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 4/16/2013, Location: South America

FOGL, the oil and gas exploration company focused on its extensive licence areas to the South and East of the Falkland Islands is pleased to provide the following operations update with respect to the ongoing 3D seismic operations.

3D seismic survey over the Diomedea Fan completed

The PGS M/V Ramform Sterling has completed a 3D seismic survey over the mid Cretaceous Diomedia fan complex within the southern area licences. A total of 5,235 square kilometres of full fold seismic data have been acquired. The survey was operated by Noble Energy on behalf of the Joint Venture, which includes Edison International Spa and FOGL.

More 3D data were acquired in this survey than originally anticipated. The Diomedea fan system covers a large area and given the favourable acquisition conditions, the Joint Venture deemed it sensible to acquire as much data as possible over prospective areas. The survey was, however, completed within the original budget.

The data will now be processed by PGS and a fast track product will be available for interpretation in approximately four months. It is anticipated that the final processed data will be available in the fourth quarter of 2013. The fast track data will be used to commence prospect mapping and well planning. Initial test lines from the survey indicate excellent data quality and imaging of the Cretaceous target interval.

3D seismic survey over the Cretaceous Fault Blocks commenced in the South Falklands basin

A second 3D seismic survey, also using the Ramform Sterling, has just commenced. This survey will cover a minimum area of 1,000 square kilometres and will target a number of prospects and leads in FOGL's southern licence area, immediately to the west and north-west of Borders and Southern's Darwin gas-condensate discovery. A further announcement regarding this survey will be made once acquisition is completed.

Third 3D survey

The Joint Venture is also currently reviewing tender offers with respect to a third 3D seismic survey to be acquired in the northern licence area in the fourth quarter of 2013.
