TANZANIA: Dodsal Resources Completes 3D seismic on its Ruvu Basin

Dodsal Resources has announced that it will shortly complete a 481 sq-km on its Ruvu license the discovery one of the largest and potentially prolific licenses onshore Tanzania. According to Dodsal the onshore 3D seismic was acquired using the latest wireless nodal recording system using a comprehensive seismic acquisition technique developed by in-depth geophysical, a first in the country.

BGP contracted by Dodsal sourced 20,000 advanced recording nodes more than 30 drilling units and 20 gps instruments to help the project before the year end. According to BGP the performance of the project has broken severl records including the highest recording production of all the company’s overseas project with explosive seismic over the last 30 years.

Early results from the fast track processing using Houston’s in depth geophysical propietory processing methods are already yielding promising results and Dodsal expects to be reasy in December 2021 with its next set of drilling locations based on interpretation  that will be provided  by Houston based Rose and Associates.

The Ruvu license covers some 4196 sq-km, including a 764 sq-km Appraisal Area over the 2015 Mambakofi-1 gas discovery. To date Dodsal have drilled 3 wells and acquired 2139 line kilometres of 2D over the area, where yet to find estimates range up to 5 tcf of gas. Dodsal aims to start its next exploration programme in early 2022 after the initial results from the 3D area are ready in December 2021.
