Aminex was aiming to look closer at the up-dip portion of the Ntorya-1 discovery in the onshore PSC.
Processing of the data has begun, with final interpreted results expected during the third quarter.
About 180 kilometres of seismic data was shot which will be used to delineate the Ntyora discovery to help with the optimisation of any future production wells.
The Ntorya-1 discovery well drilled last year yielded 178 billion cubic feet of estimated gross reserves, with an extra 1 trillion cubic feet of unrisked potential in-place volumes.
More exploration wells in the block will target unrisked prospective resources of more than 5 Tcf.
The duo have yet to find farm-in partners for the licence to support future development work and joint venture partner Solo Oil said it is hoped the results of seismic can assist in this process.
Solo said the data was acquired on time and on budget.
Solo executive director Neil Ritson said the acquisition was timely as current developments were making the project more valuable.
“This is especially timely as the commissioning of the new gas pipeline, currently under construction, to the market in Dar es Salaam will make Ntorya especially valuable,” he said
Aminex is the operator and holds 75% interest in the project, while Solo holds 25%.
