The vessel Ramform Sovereign has completed the project offshore Angola using multisensor GeoStreamer technology.

PGS noted that it has achieved operational and geological objectives successfully and safely, despite the Covid-19 restrictions.

The 2020 PGS Namibe Basin survey connects the 3D seismic coverage of southern Angola with PGS seismic data library coverage in Namibia.

It also completes a large MultiClient footprint of high-quality broadband seismic data that spans the Namibe Basin.

“Predicted reservoir presence and distribution maps indicate that this area contains a variety of leads and prospects,

“Full depth-imaging incorporating FWI velocity model building will improve knowledge of the subsurface petroleum system and reduce the risk for frontier exploration,” PGS said.

Finally, the fast-track data for Angola Namibe Basin will be available in late Q4 2020.
