In a press statement released yesterday, the company said the commencement of the 3D Seismic Survey is to aid in the finalisation of the design of the routes ahead of development drilling for first oil.
The company said Shearwater Geoservices Singapore Pte Ltd was awarded the turnkey broadband seismic contract through the wholly-owned subsidiary, KrisEnergy (Apsara) Company Limited, and has deployed the vessel SW Vespucci for the survey.
“Around 200 square km will be acquired over the Apsara development area to improve imaging of geological faults and sand bodies to aid in the finalisation of the design of well trajectories ahead of development drilling for first oil,” the statement read.
Approximately 1,000 square km will be required over a large prospective area in the southwest portion of the concession area, which has been sparsely explored by old 2D seismic lines, to improve data quality over the prospective trend in the western section of Cambodia Block A, the company added.
