Jade Gas (ASX:JGH) has begun its planned 2D seismic program at its flagship Tavan Tolgoi Coal Bed Methane (TTCBM) Project in the south Gobi region, Mongolia.
The 2D seismic survey will further augment the extensive data set that the company has acquired through its exploration efforts in the Red Lake area and beyond over the last years.
Jade says the 19 line, 105km survey comprises 2 lines particularly following the planned trajectories of the upcoming lateral wells.
“The data captured under this seismic program is an important step to assist our technical team as they continue planning for the upcoming pilot production drilling later this year”
The aim of the survey is to delineate the coal seams to support with geosteering the forthcoming lateral wells in the target seams, maximising contact with the coal and de-risking the wells by uncovering potential geological hazards prior to drill, and identify potential zones of seam thickening where resource concentration will be higher.
Additionally, the survey will better visualise and understand the structural architecture of the entire Red Lake area, uncovering areas that have undergone structural flex that may suggest areas of improved permeability.
Commenting on the seismic program, Jade Gas Executive Director Joe Burke said: “The data captured under this seismic program is an important step to assist our technical team as they continue planning for the upcoming pilot production drilling later this year.
The company has delivered outstanding gas performance results from the Red Lake gas field, and as we move forward with larger scale works, Jade continues to demonstrate the near-term and significant clean energy potential for Mongolia and our potential customers.”
Jade Gas Holdings is a gas exploration company, focused on the coal bed methane potential of Mongolia. The company’s flagship project is the Coal Bed Methane gas project over the Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) area of the TTCBM Project.
