Cyprus to Commission 3D Seismic Surveys

Thursday, May 18, 2006
Cyprus will soon commission three-dimensional surveys of the Mediterranean seabed south of the island after early indications there could be oil and gas reserves in the area, Cyprus Mail reported. Cyprus, which has not explored for hydrocarbons before, has seismic data which calls for further research in an area south-west of the island. Norwegian company Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) concluded two-dimensional research of a 60,000 square km offshore area in early May. The surveys would form the basis of a licensing round at the end of 2006. Upon conclusion of the 3D surveys authorities will divide the area into blocks and companies could bid for exploration rights, executable within two years of a company being awarded a contract.
