Egypt GANOPE Licensing Round 2016

The Ganoub el Wadi Holding Company for Petroleum (GANOPE) in Egypt has announced a new international licensing round for oil and gas exploration and exploitation in the southern Western Desert and in the Gulf of Suez. The Licensing Round will close on 30th November 2016.

The five blocks in the south of the country – West Mesaha, Mesaha, East Mesaha, El Kharga and South El Kharga – have not been licensed before, and have seen little previous exploration activity.

The five blocks in the Gulf of Suez comprise the onshore block West Gebel El Zeit, plus offshore blocks, South East Ghara, East Geisum, Sea Bird and South Sinai.

HGS International Dinner – Oligocene-Miocene Rifting and its Influence on Siliciclastic Reservoir Distribution and Exploration in the Gulf of Suez, Clues from Recent Sub-surface Analysis, Eastern Desert, Egypt

Lynx will have a ‘Vendor Corner’ booth at the forthcoming HGS International Dinner talk on Egypt to be given by Sharma Dronamraju on Monday 15th February. The talk is focussed on siliclastic reservoir distribution in the Gulf of Suez, drawing on an analysis of data obtained through EOR work on the Yusr field in the Eastern Desert.

The venue for the talk and dinner is the Westchase Hilton, at 9999 Westheimer.

Exploration opportunities in Egypt are presented in several discrete play types across its key basinal provinces. Some of the more prolific plays, such as the Lower Cretaceous Bahariya Sandstones of the Western Desert, and Oligo-Miocene to Plio-Pleistocene sandstones of the Nile Delta province, are fairly well established and continue to provide significant drilling success rates, with the recent Eni Zohr discovery (30 TCF) standing out as a world class gas field. Many other play opportunities are yet under-explored in frontier areas, and known oil accumulations in non-primary targets e.g. early Tertiary limestones in the Western Desert remain under-exploited.

The Gulf of Suez is the site of Egypt’s first oil discovery back in 1886, and to date this classic rift basin province has yielded over 130 field discoveries. Its producing fields are predominantly uplifted, pre-Miocene tilted fault blocks within which clastic and carbonate reservoirs are sealed by overlying Miocene shales and evaporites, or broad anticlinal flexures, containing Miocene clastic reservoirs formed over the uplifted blocks by differential compaction and subsidence. These fields are particularly attractive from the production standpoint, being characterised by good reservoir parameters, long oil columns, stacked pays, good quality crude and shallow water depths. A marked improvement in the technical understanding of the petroleum geology and geophysics of the basin has resulted from the refinement of the geologic models and recent improvements in seismic data quality which have improved resolution beneath the evaporites, leading to a better understanding of the distribution of pre-salt reservoirs and the recognition of a wide variety of trapping mechanisms in structural, paleogeomorphic and stratigraphic undrilled leads providing opportunities for future discoveries.

The entire exploration potential of Egypt is detailed in a comprehensive GIS-based ‘Exploration Adviser’ study produced by Lynx and partners Fairway Exploration.

HYDROCARBON POTENTIAL OF EGYPT GIS ADVISER – RECENTLY UPDATED BY LYNX

Lynx Information Systems and Fairway Exploration have recently completed an update of their GIS Database and Report on the Hydrocarbon Exploration Potential of Egypt, identifying new plays and leads in the areas of currently open acreage.

The Lynx/Fairway GIS Database and Hydrocarbon Evaluation of Egypt presents an extensive database and a comprehensive review of the exploration potential of Egypt. GIS-Based exploration portfolio management processes and tools have been used to organize the database so that it is able to support the exploration workflow at any stage from basin analysis and initial play generation, through data acquisition and on to the identification of leads and their maturation into drillable prospects. The  project contains a considerable amount of new information and interpretation. New play maps illustrating the distribution of the major source, reservoir and seal facies that make up the hydrocarbon systems in each basin have been produced. Play Fairway Maps have been generated from these data to which exploration risk parameters have been applied to develop maps suitable for undertaking Risk Analysis. In addition to the GIS and Report the database includes composite and electric logs, SEGY data and tops, reservoir and geochemistry data for over 900 wells in the area.

If you would like more information, or would like to arrange a live demonstration, then please contact us on 0208 780 2634 or email lynx@lynxinfo.co.uk.

Egypt 2015 bid rounds – EGAS and Ganope

Egypt is looking to attract further investment into its exploration scene with the recent opening of two bid rounds:

Ganoub El Wadi Holding Petroleum Company (Ganope) was first to announce its latest bid round in December 2014, and has recently extended the closing date for bids until 31st May 2015. The offer involves 10 blocks located in areas around the southern tip of the Gulf of Suez and the Eastern Desert. Visit the Ganope website for further details.

The second, more recently announced by Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS), involves eight blocks located offshore in the Nile Delta region, and also has a closing date of 31st May 2015. Visit the EGAS website.

Block polygons for both bid rounds can be viewed and downloaded from our Interactive Licensing Round Map

Lynx Information Systems Ltd and partner Fairway Exploration have recently undertaken an extensive review of exploration results and activity in Egypt over the past three years, which although subdued in part by political turmoil, has yielded further insights into it’s hydrocarbon potential. These results have been incorporated into a 2015 version of our Egypt Exploration Adviser GIS, for which more information is detailed here and also Egypt_Flyer_2015.

Please contact us for further information or for a detailed presentation of this comprehensive exploration dataset.

Lynx iLogview screenshot

Link: https://data.lynxinfo.co.uk/apps/ilogview/egypt?request=getLogview&logId=1

iLogview provides a standalone web mapping application, which can be used for well location and log QC – see a simple web map example here – https://data.lynxinfo.co.uk/apps/ilogview/egypt

Wireline logs can be integrated into your existing web mapping or DMS applications using direct links like this example, which shows wireline curves with formation tops.

You can also integrate well log data served by iLogview with seismic data served by iSeisview application to create integrated maps like this one:

WebLogview and WebSeisview integrated map - Dutch North Sea example

Link: https://data.lynxinfo.co.uk/apps/iseisview/nethpublic

iLogview has a wide range of use-cases, including virtual data rooms, national data repositories and corporate data management systems.

Web server requirements for iLogview are:

  • Microsoft Windows Server
  • Apache Tomcat 8 (or newer)
  • Java JRE 8
  • Oracle Spatial 11g R2 (optional)

iLogview serves wireline log data from LAS files stored on your web server, and reads well log metadata and (optional) well locations from Oracle Spatial tables or CSV and KML files.

Browsers supported in version 1.0 include Google Chrome (37+) and Mozilla Firefox (32+) on Windows and MacOS, Chrome and Safari on iOS 7 (iPad), and Microsoft Internet Explorer 9, 10, 11 and Microsoft Edge on Windows.

Licensing and Deployment Options

  • iLogview Deployment License – you may license either for internal company use or for public-facing use. Take advantage of full integration with your existing web mapping applications. Deploy to your own server or a cloud-based server. Use the Javascript API, RESTful interface and CSS hooks to create a customised viewer.
  • iLogview Hosting – for short-term websites (eg farm-outs and other virtual data rooms), Lynx will host your log data and provide a secure website for display of your log data and seismic data using iLogview and iSeisview. We will work with you to provide the level of customisation you require for your website – from a corporate logo and additional map layers with linked information to user authentication and activity logging.

Contact us to learn more about WebLogview, or to ask for an evaluation.
