(Image source: WesternGeco)WesternGeco has begun the acquisition of a major multi-client seismic survey offshore Mozambique using its ObliQ sliding-notch broadband acquisition and imaging technique

The technique optimises the recorded bandwidth of the seismic signal enabling more detailed imaging of the subsurface and more reliable extraction of rock properties.

"This seismic survey is optimally located to help oil and gas companies evaluate play potential offshore Mozambique," said Carel Hooykaas, president of WesternGeco.

"The ObliQ technique is expected to provide valuable high-resolution broadband imaging in this geologically complex area where recent discoveries and regional appraisals indicate significant frontier exploration potential."

The survey is being carried out in collaboration with the National Petroleum Institute of Mozambique (INP) and consists of more than 31,000km of long-offset 2D data.

The survey covers the majority of the offshore territory of Mozambique where future licensing rounds are expected.
