eFTG comes to Gabon

With their extensive experience of airborne operations in-country, AustinBridgeporth have been awarded three airborne enhanced full tensor gravity gradiometry (eFTG), magnetic and LiDAR surveys with a major operator over licences onshore and offshore Gabon. The surveys have both pre and post-salt objectives and will help to improve the understanding of the rift basin architecture, basement structures and accurately map salt bodies in an area where 2D seismic data is of poor quality and difficult to acquire.   The eFTG, exclusive to AustinBridgeporth, is the latest generation gravity gradiometer and delivers multiple improvements in sensitivity, resolution, and signal-to-noise ratio over previous generation technologies. Dr Mark Davies, CEO at AustinBridgeporth commented “Airborne gravity gradiometry is already a well-established exploration tool in Gabon so we are delighted to bring next generation eFTG technology here for the first time to provide new data in unprecedented detail.” AustinBridgeporth will use…

The benefits of the Gravity Module Assembly

Bridgeporth’s Chief Scientist, Gary Barnes, has a published article in the latest edition of Geophysical Prospecting. The special issue looks at Geophysical Instrumentation and Acquisition. Gary’s paper is titled The Gravity Module Assembly used in airborne full tensor gradiometry surveys and details the benefits of using the GMA alongside the Full Tensor Gradiometer during an airborne survey. The abstract can be read here https://doi.org/10.1111/1365-2478.12707 A list of all the articles in Volume 67 Number 6 July 2019 are listed here: 2019 Geophysical Prospecting Issue Information

AustinBridgeporth gravity & magnetic data invaluable to Greenland Gas & Oil

Check out an article in the latest edition of GeoExpro on the Jameson Land Basin in Greenland, one of the last remaining undrilled Atlantic Margin basins. AustinBridgeporth acquired airborne full tensor gravimetric, magnetics and LiDAR data over Jameson Land for GGO in August 2017. The data are currently being integrated into the new seismic interpretation to provide an enhanced insight into the structural geometry of the basin. Both the gravity and magnetics are proving to be invaluable with regards to identifying major compositional basement changes, depth to basement estimates, and defining the extent and distribution of Tertiary igneous intrusive sills and dykes that are prevalent in the southern parts of the basin. The LiDAR data has also been useful in the mapping of the surface expression of these doleritic dykes, together with other major lineaments that often represent faults and…

AustinBridgeporth signs Madagascar FTG Survey Contract

Bridgeporth’s parent company, AustinBridgeporth are pleased to announced they have signed an agreement with Oyster Oil and Gas to acquire airborne Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry (FTG) survey in the southern part of Block 1101. The survey is due to start later this month and will total approximately 2,860 line kilometres. Dr Mark Davies, CEO at AustinBridgeporth commented: “We are excited to be working with the team at Oyster once again. Our aim is to provide Oyster the highest quality data to allow them to advance their exploration programme in Madagascar.” For more information click: Oyster Oil and Gas press release and Oyster Oil and Gas website  

AustinBridgeporth completes airborne FTG survey in Greenland

Bridgeporth’s parent company, AustinBridgeporth, has completed acquisition of an Airborne Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry (FTG) survey for Greenland Gas & Oil over their concession in the Jameson Land area of South Eastern Greenland. This is a new frontier oil and gas province that is thought to be closely related to the prolific producing fields of Mid Norway. The processing of the acquired FTG data is nearing completion and will complement the current 2D seismic data and contribute towards developing a better understanding of the structural and sedimentary components of the Jameson Land Basin.
