PGS supports gas exploration off Cyprus

Oslo, Norway — PGS unveiled its new Cyprus Vision offering, covering most of the discoveries and exploration wells to date offshore Cyprus.

The most recent Cronos-1 gas discovery, drilled by Eni and TotalEnergies in Block 6, confirms the prolific presence of pre-salt Miocene-Cretaceous carbonates in the region, the company said, following earlier discoveries by Calypso and Glaucus. .

The Cronos-1 well encountered various intervals of good quality carbonate reservoirs with an overall net gas production of over 260 m. Early estimates suggest around 2.5 Tcf in place, with a significant upside. Another exploration well (Zeus-1) is being drilled on the block.

According to PGS, Cyprus Vision benefits from high-speed 3D GeoStreamer quality which should provide additional information and help determine analogues on other blocks in the region.

According to PGS, modern seismic data over approximately 20,000 km2 is a crucial tool for exploring offshore Cyprus.

The project consists of phase 1 and phase 2. Phase 1 consists of 14,750 km2 of modern PSDM reprocessed data. Phase 2 includes 6,000 km2 of modern and refreshed KPSDM data. The final reprocessed volume will be delivered on a common grid.

Several commercial gas discoveries have been made in the eastern Mediterranean in recent years, including Zohr, Calypso and Glaucus. There is also the possibility of Miocene pre-salt sand reservoirs.

The final restated PSDM deliverables for phase 1 are available. The full volume of Cyprus Vision restated, delivered on a common grid, will be available in the first quarter of 2023.
