Invictus reports "encouraging" seismic results in Zimbabwe
Australia’s Invictus Energy on November 12 reported "encouraging" preliminary seismic results at the Cabora Bassa gas project in Zimbabwe. The seismic survey was completed earlier this month with a total of 839.5 km of high-resolution 2D seismic data acquired.
Invictus managing director Scott Macmillan said the initial processing results of the seismic acquisition have produced high-quality data revealing a variety of structural and stratigraphic features providing for a target-rich environment for the upcoming drilling programme.
“The early indications from the preliminary seismic processing are very encouraging and particularly the strong amplitude anomalies observed in the Muzarabani structure and along the basin margin fault,” he said.
Macmillan said Invictus is moving forward with the selection of optimal drilling locations for the upcoming drilling campaign scheduled for the first half of 2022.
The Cabora Bassa project comprises the Mzarabani and Msasa gas and condensate prospects, which Invictus describes as "world-class multi-trillion ft3" plays. The project received environmental approval from Zimbabwean authorities in August last year.
