South Africa: Tugela South

Tugela South lies offshore in the Durban Basin extending from Durban to Richards Bay. The water depth ranges from shelf shallows to approximately 1,600m.


Following the acquisition of 5000km of new 2D seismic data in 2011/12 Impact has fulfilled work obligations for the first phase of the Exploration Right. Interpretation of the data has revealed a number of exciting prospects which, in 2016, were covered by a 1900km2 3D seismic survey, and aerogravity/magnetic survey and onshore fieldwork performed by CGG-Robertson to help further understand reservoir type and provenance. A Technical program is now underway to evaluate this new data.
