Talk Description

In 2012 TGS acquired over 28,000 km of 2D seismic data over the Mauritania, Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea Bissau and Guinea Conakry (MSGBC) Basin on the North West African Atlantic Margin (NWAAM). Recent drilling success in the basin with over a Billion barrels of oil discovered last year has increased industry interest in this relatively unexplored region, with less than one well every 6000 sq. km.
The basin is roughly a third the size of the Gulf of Mexico and extends from onshore to water depths of up to 4000 m. The southern boundary of the basin is marked by the Guinea Transform Fault and the northern margin is delineated by the Moroccan Reguibat Shield.
