HOUSTON, Nov. 10
– Dominion Petroleum Ltd., Hamilton, Bermuda, completed shooting 1,236 sq km of 3D seismic surveys on Block 7 off Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The long-offset data shot with 7-km streamer will support amplitude variation with offset studies. Processing should be complete by the second quarter of 2011. Dominion holds 100% interest in the block.

Block 7 is 200 km north of Pweza-1, Tanzania’s first deepwater discovery, which encountered gas-bearing sands on Block 4 last month to establish the presence of a working petroleum system in the Mafia basin (OGJ Online, Oct. 22, 2010).
