  • Petroleum Exploration History

Petroleum exploration in The Gambia started in 1956.

Numerous 2D seismic surveys were conducted from 1973 to 2001. A 500 square kilometer 3D seismic survey was completed in 2003. 2500 square kilometer 3D seismic survey by licensee and recently completed 1603 square kilometer acquisition by Polarcus.

Only three wells were drilled in The Gambia. i.e Sarakunda-1, Brikama-1 and Jammah-1

Two onshore wells were drilled by BP in 1960. Chevron drilled the only offshore well in 1979. All the wells encountered oil or gas shows from Cretaceous section, however, no commercial discovery has been made so far.

Considering the number of the wells drilled, we can say that The Gambia is under explored. Making it an exploration hotspot with the current discoveries in the region
  • The Gambia within MSGBC Basin
