Kenyan Gravity Gradiometry Survey Completed for Tullow

ARKeX, the provider of geophysical imaging services, has completed a BlueQube airborne gravity gradiometry survey in Kenya for Tullow Oil plc. The survey ranks amongst one of the larger airborne Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometer (FTG) surveys flown to date. The total survey area covers blocks 12A, 10A and 10BA that surround Lake Turkana in North West Kenya.

Part of the East African Rift, the Turkana Rift Basin shares many geological attributes with the Lake Albert Rift Basin in Uganda; where Tullow have had a number of major discoveries. The Kenyan acreage has shown good evidence of a live oil system and the gravity gradiometry survey will help to provide an improved picture of the sub surface geology.

"We were delighted to be asked by Tullow to carry out a BlueQube survey", said Paul Versnel, VP Sales ARKeX. "It is a remote and demanding environment to operate in but I'm pleased to say we have completed the survey in excellent time and the results should prove extremely useful in shedding new light on this complex geological area."

The survey data will be used to identify basement structures, delineate fault trends and in the delineation of volcanics. The initial data is being fast tracked by ARKeX through processing with final processed results due in November.
