TerraScan acquired a total of 3,250 square kilometers offshore gScan data in Equatorial Guinea, using our proprietary remote sensing gScan algorithm. The distribution of 2,718 hydrocarbon indicators has been computed and a subsurface earth model has been created. The objective of this survey was to identify possible hydrocarbon accumulations and to provide a new set of cross-sections and structural maps to define the limits of the petroleum system of this block. The analysis of the area resulted in a mapping of areas containing stacked sand systems in depths around 3,500 m. The findings are verified by 3D seismic. The acquisition and processing was executed using our gScan processing technology using image, signal processing, lineament and geodynamic analysis.
