Talk Description
Impact Oil & Gas Limited has built up a substantial exploration acreage position consisting of 76,000 km2 of frontier exploration blocks along the eastern coastline of South Africa. The acreage includes the Tugela Cone; the Transkei/Algoa transform margin blocks and the inshore West Bredasdorp blocks – just to the west of the PetroSA producing fields in the Mossel Bay area. Impact’s presentation will deal with its experience in acquiring this acreage and its exploration programmes to date. In particular, the challenges in seismic acquisition will be discussed and the solutions found to optimise data quality. Data examples from Impact’s acreage over the Tugela Cone will be presented together with Impact’s ideas of the hydrocarbon potential of its entire acreage. The final part of the presentation will cover Impact’s plans for further exploration in the area.
