Genel to shoot 3D seismic over Sidi Moussa, Morocco

Written by  OE Staff Thursday, 09 November 2017 04:05

UK-based independent Genel Energy is to carry out a 3D seismic campaign across the Sidi Moussa acreage offshore Morocco, in place of an exploration well.

The firm reached an agreement with the Moroccan government over its remaining exploration commitment on the Sidi Moussa offshore licensed acreage.

Planning for the 3D campaign has started, with seismic acquisition expected to begin in 2018. The current phase of the license has been extended until February 2020.

The 3D seismic is expected to materially de-risk the prospectivity of the Sidi Moussa license. 

In Q4 2014, a well on the licence, SM-1, proved a working hydrocarbon system, with 26 degree API oil recovered to surface.
