Dana partner begins deep water 3D seismic survey in Guinea

Back to press releases

Hyperdynamics Corporation, Dana’s majority partner in an offshore oil and gas concession in the Republic of Guinea, has started a deep water 3D seismic survey.

Using the survey vessel Oceanic Endeavour, seismic contractor CGGVeritas will acquire 3D seismic data in a deep water area covering approximately 4,000 square kilometers. After it completes the data acquisition phase of the project, CGGVeritas will also process the data.

The survey area is located just southwest of and adjacent to the 3D survey obtained by Hyperdynamics in 2010. The primary goal of this new survey is to investigate multiple possible deep water submarine fans in the equatorial Atlantic margin that were identified from a 2D seismic survey acquired in 2009.

Ray Leonard, Hyperdynamics CEO, commented, “The deep water 3D survey will utilise CGGVeritas’ BroadSeis broadband solution, which is expected provide a clearer and more detailed image of the subsurface. This 3D survey is a critical next step in our ongoing Guinea exploration campaign, one that should further de-risk our acreage and help us identify the most promising deep water locations for future drilling.”
