Vanco Energy and Aker Geo launch 3D survey offshore Namibia

Jul 20, 2000 02:00 AM

Vanco Energy of Houston and Aker Geo of Oslo have launched a 3D survey offshore Namibia in the frontier region of the Namibe Basin. Aker Geo's super class 3D vessel, the "Aker Amadeus," departed the port of Walvis Bay to begin a one-month survey of Vanco's License Area 1711.
The license area is situated in the northern region of Namibia next to the southern border of Angola. The Vanco/Aker Geo survey will cover 650 sq km of Vanco's 8,931-sq km license area.
Vanco was awarded License Area 1711 on June 14, 2000. Vanco, as operator (88 %), shares interest with The National Petroleum Corporation of Namibia (Namcor) (9 %) and Pamue Investment (3 %). Existing 2D seismic shows at least one large structure, probably Cretaceous in age.
"Normally we would shoot 2D seismic first, as we have in the past with our acreage offshore Gabon, Morocco, Senegal and Cote d'Ivoire," says Vanco President Gene Van Dyke. "But, based on the considerable speculative 2D seismic we have purchased, we are going straight to 3D."

Vanco Energy Company is a Houston-based independent oil and gas company specialising in exploring and developing West Africa's deep water. In addition to Namibia, Vanco has licenses offshore Morocco, Senegal, Cote d'Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.
