Football brings people together

On a recent survey, the Bridgeporth crew (some who are lifelong Swansea fans!) contributed to the Somaliland Football Development Foundation. Bridgeporth donated football kits for three teams and thirty footballs for this very worthy cause that will be used by the children of Burao. Somaliland Football Development Foundation (SFDF) is a non-profit, charitable organisation that uses the power of football to improve the lives of both boys and girls in under privileged communities of Somaliland.

Processing Ascending

Bridgeporth’s Processing Department reached a significant milestone recently. The Processing Geophysicists in the department have processed over 500,000 line km of marine potential field data, that’s more kilometres than the circumference of Jupiter. In the 3 years since the department started it has not only processed marine potential field data but also airborne and land gravity and magnetic data that has been acquired by Bridgeporth or other service providers. Software used for processing is Geosoft’s Oasis Montaj together with proprietary Bridgeporth software. Other services provided are re-processing and merging of legacy datasets, mapping of satellite and Landsat imagery using GlobalMapper.  

Giving seismic an uplift with gravity and magnetics

Jonathan Watson, Bridgeporth’s Interpretation Manager champions the use of gravity and magnetics as a low-cost exploration tool that can deliver a cost benefit to exploration programs. In a recent article in Geosoft’s online magazine Earth Explorer, Jonathan advocates the use of gravity and magnetics in a variety of scenarios, such as frontier areas or seismically challenged areas, with minimal costs.

Useful data for unconventionals

Jonathan Watson, Bridgeporth’s Interpretation Manager, spoke recently at a Finding Petroleum event in London in October about the benefits of using potential field data in the exploration of unconventionals.  

Bridgeporth commences ERHC airborne gravity and magnetic survey in Chad

ERHC Energy Chad has announced the commencement of an airborne gravity and magnetic survey of BDS 2008 in Southern Chad flown by Bridgeporth Ltd. The acquired gravity and magnetic data covering North of Esso’s Tega and Maku discoveries in the Doseo basin and East of and on trend with OPIC’s Benoy-1 margin discovery in the Doba basin will also be processed and interpreted by Bridgeporth.

ERHC Energy Chad contracts Bridgeporth for airborne gravity and magnetic survey of BDS 2008 in Chad

ERHC Energy Chad has announced the award of a contract for acquisition, processing and interpretation of gravity/magnetic data of BDS 2008 in Chad to Bridgeporth Ltd. Bridgeporth will fly 4,720 line kilometers over BDS 2008 in southern Chad commencing in the third quarter of this year. The Block is located on the northern edge of the Doba and Doseo basin, the site of active exploration and development projects with discoveries exceeding 1,290 MMBOE. Bridgeporth’s survey will focus on two main areas: north of Esso’s Tega and Maku discoveries in the Doseo basin; and east of and on trend with OPIC’s Benoy-1 margin discovery in the Doba basin.
