Chariot: 2D Seismic Survey Begins Offshore Namibia
Chariot Oil & Gas Limited has, in conjunction with its partners AziNam (20%), NAMCOR (10%) and Ignitus (5%), started a 2D seismic acquisition survey of approximately 1,700km offshore Namibia.
SeaBird Exploration is conducting the survey in the Central Blocks 2312 & 2412A, the company informed.
Chariot and its partners have agreed to initially carry out a 2D survey, which will infill an existing grid of data in order to gain a better understanding of the regional prospectivity of this large licence area (which covers approximately 16,800km2).
This will enable the Company to optimize the design of the location and size of the 3D seismic programme required as a commitment during this current phase of exploration. The survey is anticipated to take approximately two weeks to acquire.
