CGG wins seismic job as Mozambique eyes more LNG feedgas

CGG has won a contract from Instituto Nacional de Petroleo (INP) to acquire seismic data offshore Mozambique. 

The program is designed to improve the insight into the region’s geology and improve the understanding of the country’s prospectivity, CGG said in a statement on Thursday.

The program includes a 2D survey of over 6,550 km in the offshore Rovuma basin, including blocks R5-A, R5-B and R5-C, and a large 3D survey over the Beira High in the Zambezi Delta.

The 3D survey is expected to be up to 40,000 square kilometers, covering blocks Z5-C and Z5-D and surrounding open acreage in this area which is believed to be prospective.

So far, 85 Tcf of gas have been discovered in the Rovuma basin, including the Coral field that is estimated to contain around 16 trillion cubic feet of gas.

Italy’s Eni, the operator of Area 4 where the Coral discovery is located has recently signed a 20-year deal with UK-based BP for the supply of liquefied natural gas from the Coral FLNG project that has been approved in January.

Under the agreement, BP has booked the full export capacity of the proposed Coral FLNG project which will have a capacity above 3.3 million tons per annum of LNG.
