Nigeria's Delta region is home to vast oil reserves. NigeriaSPAN is a regional, basin-scale 2D seismic program, consisting of nearly 10,000 km of newly acquired data in the Gulf of Guinea and the Republic of Nigeria. Lines from the Niger Delta extend across the Cameroon volcanic line to tie with discoveries in the EquatorSPAN and CongoSPAN areas.

Phase II of NigeriaSPAN consists of additional data in the Republic of Nigeria. This new infill grid is designed to increase the line density of the dip and strike lines to provide a tight control to the imaging of the structural provinces and provide improved basement architecture and transform fault delineation.

Program Objectives

  • Advance the interpretation of the petroleum systems in the Niger Delta
  • Open new play types for future explorations opportunities, while clarifying existing drilled plays and relationships
  • Gain greater understanding of the basement architecture and its potential for the deepwater Niger Delta
  • Advance understanding of shale tectonics and the region bounded by counter-regional faults

Key Components

  • Pre-stack time (PreSTM) and pre-stack depth (PreSDM) imaging using specially designed velocity analysis techniques, long offsets and 18-second record length
  • Spectacular imaging of the counter-regional faults, various akata share provinces and comprehensive understanding of the structural styles of the Delta
