Sasol completes onshore 3-D seismic campaign in Mozambique

Sasol has completed the first-ever 3-D onshore seismic programme in Mozambique. This involved the acquisition of 115 square kilometres of data in the Inhassoro field, which is part of the onshore Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) licence area.

To be developed in phases, the first phase of the PSA licence area development proposes an integrated oil, LPG and gas project adjacent to Sasol’s existing Petroleum Production Agreement (PPA) area. Sasol has made significant progress on Tranche 1 of the PSA Development as approved by the Council of Ministers on 26 January 2016.

Senior vice-president for Sasol Exploration and Production International, John Sichinga, said: “The acquisition of the 3-D seismic data in the Inhassoro field will significantly enhance our understanding of the structure of the oil accumulations through better resolution and more defined characterisation of the reservoir. While initial results appear encouraging, it is still too early to give further detail.”
