Suspension of Licensing Round

OMNIS in partnership with TGS and BGP,  regret to inform you that following the decision from the newly elected Government, the 2018/2019 Madagascar Licensing Round involving 44 blocks in the Morondava basin is suspended until further notification.

More information and the official statement from the Ministry of Mines and Strategic Resources will be available on Monday (18/02/2019).

TGS and BGP still welcome you to join us at the Houston and London events. However, these events will not now be associated with OMNIS and as such will focus mainly on the prospectivity of Madagascar and the available data within the region. We will run a shortened agenda in the morning only.

TGS also remain committed to the pre-booked Data Viewings at TGS offices In Houston and Surbiton. However, if you wish to cancel please contact Eugenio Toraldo Serra (Eugenio.Serra@tgs.com), otherwise we look forward to hosting you.

Exploration in Madagascar

Exploration in Madagascar began in the early 1900s with the discovery of hydrocarbon-rich sedimentary basins in the west, including the Tsimiroro heavy oil field and the Bemolanga tar sands. After over 100 years of exploration, the offshore of this frontier region remains largely under-explored. The Island shares a maritime boundary with Mozambique, a hydrocarbon province where large quantities of natural gas have been discovered.

 

OMNIS, together with TGS and BGP, has worked to create an attractive environment for offshore exploration. Studies conducted on new data, suggest there is significant potential for future discoveries offshore.  To this end, 44 Offshore Blocks in the Morondava Basin, located on the western margin of Madagascar, will be available. 

Madagascar has a prolific geology and a diversified portfolio of exploration and production opportunities. We strongly believe that the 2018-2019 promotional campaign will mark the intensification of exploration activities in Madagascar.

44 offshore blocks with a total acreage of 63,296 km² in the Morondava Basin will be open for bidding. Each rectangular block size is about 1,940 km².
