In this presentation the new datasets from the offshore Kwanza and Namibe Basins will be shown and the pre- and post-salt sequences, facies and plays that these illuminate will be explained. Examples will be shown of pre- and post-salt imaging, together with our understanding of the reservoir facies and reservoir properties in several intervals. Additionally, the results of a preliminary quantitative interpretation (QI) study, constrained by a depositional sequence model and using pre-stack seismic inversion will be shown, illustrating the reservoir and fluid property information that the seismic data reveals.
