Schlumberger, Seitel in new 2D seismic project in onshore Mexico

Schlumberger and Seitel have announced a joint multi-client seismic project to re-image and to acquire new geophysical data in areas of onshore Mexico, Kallanish Energy reports.

The companies said that about 25,000 kilometers of 2D seismic data from Mexico’s National Hydrocarbons Commission files will be re-imaged covering lease blocks in the current Bid Round 2 as well as future onshore lease blocks.

In addition, new multi-client data acquisition projects are being developed, the companies said.

The project is expected to provide subsurface images of proven oil and gas reservoirs in the Sabina-Burgos, Tampico-Misantla, Veracruz and Sureste areas as well as what the two companies in a statement called the under-explored Chihuahua province and other strategic areas, they reported.

The re-imaging program covers both conventional and unconventional onshore lease blocks in the area.

“The areas for re-imaging were strategically selected to deliver regional analysis of the prospective plays across onshore Mexico with both organizations using high-end processing workflows,” said Maurice Nessim, president of Western Geco, Schlumberger.

Final products from the Tampico-Misantla Basin are available for license from the two companies.
