HOUSTON, June 15
-- HRT Participacoes said a PGS vessel completed acquisition on May 14, 2011, of 1,500 sq km of 3D seismic on Block 2815 in the Orange subbasin off Namibia. The data are being processed.

Adverse weather suspended 3D seismic acquisition on May 12 by the Polarcus Samur on Orange subbasin blocks 2813A, 2814B, 1914A, and 2713A. Before suspension, the vessel had covered one-third of the 2,660 sq km contracted. Shooting will resume in November 2011.

Meanwhile, HRT in early June received 15 boxes containing 3,592 tapes of 3D seismic data recorded on the 2112B and 2212A blocks in the Walvis basin and 2713A and 2813A blocks in the Orange basin. HRT sent the tapes to CGGVeritas RJ for analysis and processing.
