TOTAL E and P Namibia B.V. - Proposed 3D Seismic Survey in Licence Blocks 2912 and 2913B, Namibia
TEPNA holds Exploration Licences for Blocks 2912 and 2913B off the southern coast of Namibia. To investigate subsea geological formations and meet the obligations of the Exploration Licence for Block 2912, TEPNA is planning to undertake a 3D seismic survey within this licence block, as well as a portion of Block 2913B. The proposed 3D seismic survey and operational areas are 6 474 km2 and 9 797 km2, respectively. The survey would take up to 100 days to complete and is planned to commence in December 2020/January 2021. SLR has been appointed to undertake the required Scoping and EIA process as part of the application for an Environmental Clearance Certificate.
