    CGX Energy completes 3-D survey

    Projects and Operations // January 26, 2009

    CGX Energy has announced that shooting of a 1,839 square kilometre 3-D seismic survey on CGX's 25 per cent of the Georgetown Petroleum Prospecting Licence (PPL) has been completed.

    Joint Venture Partners in the Georgetown PPL include the Operator, Repsol (15 per cent) and its subsidiary, YPF Guyana (30 per cent), and Tullow Guyana BV (30 per cet).

    The Georgetown survey was shot jointly with CGX's 505 square kilometre survey on its 100 per cent owned Corentyne PPL that was completed in December.

    Kerry Sully, President & CEO stated, "We are very pleased with the completion of both surveys that were shot by Fugro Geoteam's Geo Pacific and despite a worsening weather window late in the programme, the surveys were completed on schedule and on budget."

    CGX's share of the combined acquisition program is currently estimated to be US$15.5 million. Health, safety and environment were a priority and there were no work-related lost time accidents.

    Almost all of the consumables and critical supplies were sourced in Guyana and onshore logistics were efficiently managed by Fugro with local service provider, Demerara Shipping Company Ltd.

    Warren Workman, VP Exploration, said: "Data quality reviewed to date is excellent with minimal noise and early results giving clear images below 30,000ft. Processing has been on-going since November, with PSTM interpretation expected by the second quarter on the Corentyne PPL. In anticipation that the seismic interpretation will continue to support a drilling commitment on the Corentyne PPL, we are advancing in parallel our well drilling design and environmental assessment study."
