HOUSTON, Sept. 9
– Vanco Energy Co. let a contract to OHM Group subsidiary Rock Solid Images for a 2,000 sq km seismic reservoir characterization project off Ivory Coast. Vanco Energy and Rock Solid Images are Houston firms.

Vanco Energy said the study is an extension to the successful and recently completed prestack seismic inversion projects conducted by Rock Solid Images over the Orca and Baleine prospects. It also builds on the ongoing prestack seismic inversion of the Bassam Canyon prospect.

Rock Solid Images will characterize potential reservoir facies and reservoir properties for a prospective area that warrants additional research.

Vanco Energy shot 1,029 sq km of 3D seismic in late 2007 on blocks CI-101 and CI-401, west of and on trend with large deepwater oil discoveries off Ghana.
