Seismic Prospecting or Geophysical Prospecting
Is to apply seismic methods to map the geological structures of the subsurface of stratigraphic features in order to locate oil and gas or mineral deposits. Seismic prospecting includes seismic reflection and refraction, however in the oil field major emphasis is given to seismic reflection.
234.000 km of two-dimensional seismic (2D) were acquired onshore and offshore, throughout the national territory from 1953 to 2020.
Since 2007 until now, approximately 54.900 sqkm of three-dimensional seismic data were acquired onshore and offshore Mozambique and Rovuma Basins.
