Digital subsurface platform
Stop exploring for data—start exploring for oil and gas.
The anticipated announcement of Mozambique’s 6th oil and gas licensing round will promote exploration and production activities, and we have comprehensive data coverage from shallow to deep water that provides insight into the geology offshore Mozambique. Palaeocene and Oligocene submarine channels are targets in the Rovuma Basin; these targets remain a focus in the Mozambique Channel area and extend farther south. Explorationists have also successfully mapped and identified Cretaceous slope- and basin-floor fans.
WesternGeco, in collaboration with the National Petroleum Institute of Mozambique (INP), holds an extensive multiclient 2D and 3D data library of offshore Mozambique ranging from prestacked time migration (PSTM) and prestacked depth migration (PSDM) data to shallow hazard 3D volumes. Available to license, these seismic datasets reveal the hydrocarbon potential of both shallow- and deepwater turbiditic systems. This library of regional seismic coverage enables you to map and derisk the sedimentary architecture of these clastic systems.
The 2D library covers more than 110,000 km of seismic data, including 68,000 km of modern broadband data with infill and 24,000 km of reprocessed legacy surveys using PSTM.
WesternGeco worked extensively to interpret 2D seismic datasets and conduct regional petroleum systems modeling to further enhance your understanding of basins offshore Mozambique. We offer industry-standard and workstation-ready datasets that enable you to thoroughly understand these frontier margins.
The time processing workflow included deghosting, noise attenuation, demultiple, and prestack anisotropic Kirchhoff time migration to provide a clear broadband seismic image of the reservoir targets. These datasets clarify geological uncertainties, especially in deepwater targets, by
WesternGeco selected key lines primarily from this regional 2D broadband seismic dataset to support your understanding of the petroleum systems.
Data package includes
Working with the INP in 2016, WesternGeco acquired 15,000 km2 of 3D broadband seismic data in the prospective Angoche Basin. The survey covers an open area of 5,000 km2 in addition to the adjacent blocks awarded in the 5th licensing round.
The Angoche 3D seismic data, acquired using IsoMetrix marine seismic technology, provides a significant improvement in both data quality and coverage to highlight prospectivity of the region and reduce risk in the exploration and development phases.
