CGG will acquire a new multi-client survey of up to 40,000 km2 of offshore 3D data over the Beira High in the Zambezi Delta, covering blocks Z5-C and Z5-D and surrounding open acreage. The seismic data will be imaged with t3D broadband deghosting and advanced velocity modelling and imaging techniques, including Full-Waveform Inversion.

The survey will form part of a comprehensive geoscience program that aims to deliver a better overall understanding of the region's hydrocarbons prospects. Marine gravity and magnetic data will be acquired simultaneously with the seismic to accelerate regional interpretation.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: “This agreement marks the beginning of a fruitful partnership with the INP to promote the potential of the Zambezi basin and other regions of Mozambique. Our advanced 3D seismic and integrated geoscience program will enable oil companies to confidently de-risk this exciting new exploration area and accelerate development of the country’s resources.”
