New 3D seismic survey commenced offshore Senegal
FAR Limited (‘FAR’) and its Senegal joint venture partners have begun a new 3D seismic survey over its Sangomar Deep, Sangomar and Rufisque permits, offshore Senegal.

The Polarcus Adira 3D seismic vessel will acquire data in the north and east parts of the permits along trend from existing mapped prospects (as shown in Figure 1) where there is currently no 3D seismic data coverage. The survey will also assist with the delineation of the existing SNE discovery. Data acquisition is expected to be completed in Q4 2015 and final processed products are to be delivered in mid-2016.

The seismic survey is an integral part of the joint venture’s evaluation program of the Sangomar Deep, Sangomar and Rufisque permits.

This evaluation program includes a firm three wells expected to start in early Q4 2015. Two appraisal wells will be drilled on the SNE discovery located In the Shelf Edge Play and the Bellatrix prospect will be evaluated with an exploration well. Bellatrix will be the first well to be drilled in the Buried Hills play that FAR considers is highly prospective and the first exploration well to be drilled since the successful SNE-1 and FAN-1 discovery wells.

The FAN-1 and SNE-1 oil discoveries encourage FAR that further exploration drilling offshore Senegal may yield more success. FAR currently estimates 1.5 billion barrels of gross prospective resources* (225 mmbbls net) lie within prospects mapped using existing 3D seismic data (refer ASX release 13 April 2015). FAR expects the new 3D seismic will add to this inventory of exploration prospects on the shelf where FAR sees extensions of both the Shelf Edge and Buried Hills plays.
