Congo Peu Profond Survey presentation, PGS

Congo Peu Profond workshop, Pointe-Noire

30th January 2020


In preparation for new acquisition Congo Peu Profond, DGH and SNPC hosted a workshop in Pointe-Noire on Thursday 30th January 2020. The workshop had over 30 attendees from multiple companies with PGS as technical partner.

Directrice Générale des Hydrocarbures Mme. Teresa GOMA extended the invitation to companies who hold interest in the permit area and presented the importance of a new high quality dataset. New data will ensure for continued success in the region and revival of exploration in the Congo Shelf area.

PGS New Ventures Manager Congo, Christine Roche, presented a technical overview and the initial proposed parameters. The participation and pre-commitment from companies is critical to ensure the success of the planned survey.

The improvements in seismic technology and acquisition and processing techniques over the last number of years offers the opportunity to fully evaluate both pre- and post-salt remaining prospectivity.  The new data will enhance pre-salt imaging and improve our knowledge of the post-salt opportunities, unlocking plays and prospects not imaged fully by the existing data.

Modern acquisition techniques are proposed  which take into consideration the multiple existing fields that lie within the permit area. The planned survey will ensure there is no disruption to ongoing production and current plans.

The speeches and presentations from the workshop are available to download below. Please contact to find out more.
