Evaluating Potential Plays in South Africa

Anadarko is in the very early stages of exploration activities in South Africa. The company operates offshore Block 5/6/7, which covers more than 23 million acres. In 2013, a 3,800-mile 2D seismic program and a high-resolution seafloor survey were completed. This data is being interpreted and mapped to better understand the basin geology and plan a 3D seismic program.
