Unraveling the hydrocarbon potential of deep water Mozambique Channel
Authors: Tolulope Olayemi
The deep water Mozambique Channel is a frontier exploration area of over 100,000 km2, covering several national jurisdictions.
Surveys ranging from Radar satellite to 3-D Seismic were used to determine the hydrocarbon potential of the area.
Advanced ArcGIS for Desktop was employed to integrate spatial datasets and imagery from these surveys for robust analysis.
This paper highlights the use of GIS as a platform for Exploration integration analysis as well as a geopolitical organizational tool.
