The survey will cover a minimum of 150,000km and have an estimated value of US$88mn-176mn, the company said, depending on how much area is covered.

SeaBird has cited Mexico as a potential growth market following energy reforms that allowed private investment in the oil and gas sector, noting that only 20% of its offshore acreage has been surveyed.
