The four offshore basins of Namibia are highly underexplored despite one of these basins containing the large undeveloped Kudu gas field. Substantial discoveries elsewhere on both sides of the South Atlantic conjugate margin have brought new focus on the potential of the entire West African margin. With billion barrel fields in neighbouring Angola to the north, attention has turned to the relatively neglected potential of the Namibian offshore basins. Following basin reconnaissance using sparse 2D seismic grids, 3D seismic data is being acquired over many of the most attractive blocks awarded in Namibia. This study describes the results of a fast-tracked integrated project delivering a dual-sensor 3D broadband seismic and seismic attribute analysis to provide increased understanding of petroleum systems and risk elements, prospective resource volumes and high-grading and de-risking drilling targets.
