KrisEnergy (SGX:SK3) has completed a 2D seismic exploration programme offshore Bangladesh.
The 3,146 kilometre survey of the SS-11 exploration block took 22 days to complete.
“The existing 2D data sets were acquired in the mid-1970s and this programme will provide higher resolution data to confirm existing prospects and leads and assess the overall prospectivity of the block,” said Chris Gibson-Robinson, director of exploration and production.
“It will also help us determine potential locations for a planned 3D seismic programme, to which we are committed under the work programme obligations.”
Block SS-11 covers a total of 4,475 square kilometres in the Bay of Bengal, and the majority of the acreage lies within shallow waters (up to 200 metres).
KrisEnergy has a 45% interest in Block SS-11, alongside Santos Sangu Field Ltd, which has 45% and the Bangladesh Petroleum Exploration and Production Company owning the other 10%.
