Congo Peu Profond – new acquisition

This exciting new opportunity will allow SNPC to provide extensive coverage over the prospective and producing region on the Congo Shelf, to unlock plays and prospects not seen by the existing data. Partnering with PGS, the new data will enhance pre-salt imaging and improve our knowledge of the post-salt opportunities.

Congo MegaSurveyPlus – reprocessing

In 2019, PGS and SNPC reprocessed a vast amount of seismic data over the shelfal area, which provides robust datasets that reduce the technical risks of Congo shelf exploration. The Congo Shelf presents presalt plays and rift structures in prolific shallow-water acreage, close to existing infrastructure. Mesozoic salt basins with associated fields and discoveries extend across this area to the present-day onshore.


With a modern reprocessing flow PGS and SNPC have revitalized the entire basin area with an improved and consistent regional geological perspective, tying wells to a common 3D data set to allow a regional interpretation and identification of prospects, plays and migration paths. The Congo MegaSurveyPlus comprises 12 surveys, all reprocessed from field data using the latest broadband processing techniques, to deliver PSDM and prestack volumes and clearer images. Increased bandwidth and signal fidelity allow for better velocity models and more reliable images.
