It is the result of compromise between the planetary scientists (who agreed on the "roundness" criterion), and the dynamical astronomers (who insisted on the "clearing" criterion that tipped Pluto toward dwarf planet status). After figuring a method for determining latitude in the southern hemisphere, Portuguese sailors were able to navigate to the Cape of Good Hope, at the southern tip of Africa.

Following interpretation of the 3D seismic data and subsequent commissioned studies to determine the viability of the Integrated Tano Fields Development Project to use the gas for power generation, GNPC drilled three wells over the South Tano Field in 1994 using its acquired drillship (Discoverer 511) and three other rigs in addition to other infrastructure to help facilitate rapid development of the Tano Fields.
