EGS UNDERTAKES LARGE SWATHE BATHYMETRY MAPPING SURVEY OFFSHORE TIMOR LESTE

EGS (Asia) Ltd. has been awarded a contract by Toke Oil&Gas SA in partnership with the State Secretariat for Natural Resources of the Government of Timor-Leste and Bathymetric Survey Consortium partners to carry out a bathymetric survey covering the entire East Timorese southern offshore area to augment the sparse existing bathymetry information in view of future oil and gas development projects and in particular to determine the most advantageous and economic pipeline routing(s) through the 3500m deep Timor Trough which lies in between the southern offshore acreage (East Timor – Australian Joint Petroleum Development Area (JPDA)) and the East Timor main land. The project is managed by DeepGulf Inc., a US based company specialized in designing and building of deep water pipeline systems. The total survey area covers 43,000sqkm, of which 50% are in water depths deeper than 1500m. The extent of the survey area is comparable with the size of Switzerland (41,285sqkm)!
