Simba, Essel Group Middle East complete 2D seismic data acquisition on block 2-A

Simba Energy and Essel Group Middle East have announced that the 2D seismic acquisition program on Block 2A in Wajir, Kenya has been successfully completed by Africa Geophysical Services Ltd (AGS).

The survey has acquired a total of 520 kilometres of 2D seismic data on the block lying within the Mandera basin. Multi-level quality control checks were applied throughout the project to achieve a best quality outcome.

The seismic data acquired is currently being interpreted to determine petroleum systems, and various structural leads. This processing, integration and interpretation is now underway and it is anticipated it to be completed in early Quarter 1 in 2017.

A further technical update will be provided as information becomes available.

Punkaj Gupta, CEO of Simba Energy and EGME commented “The data acquired by AGS is extremely good quality and we are greatly encouraged from early interpretations that suggest Block 2A contains very favorable structural and stratigraphic conditions that will lead to defined drill targets”.
