Total hires Ocean Infinity for seismic surveys in Angola
Subsea technology and data company Ocean Infinity has been awarded a contract by Total for seismic surveys in Angola.
During the project, Ocean Infinity will be deploying its technology to conduct 2D ultra high-resolution seismic surveys and seabed soil sampling in Block 32 and Block 17.
Paul Helmore, Ocean Infinity’s CCO, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Total E&P in Angola with this project and that our ability to provide answers for the offshore energy sector continues to be recognized.
“Being awarded this project further confirms that our innovative technology driven approach is continuing to meet the growing demand for a higher value and lower impact method to acquire ocean data. We are excited to be working with Total on this project to gather data in the most innovative way the industry has seen.”
Total first moved into Block 17 in 1997. Located off the coast of Angola, nearly 1,300 meters below sea level, Block 17 is made up of four major hubs – Girassol, Dalia, Pazflor and CLOV (Cravo, Lirio, Orquidea and Violeta) – which were gradually brought on stream between 2001 and 2014.
The Block 32 contains the Kaombo project, which is located 260 kilometers off the coast of Luanda, in water depths ranging from 1,400 to 2,000 meters.
