Halmahera 2D Non-Exclusive Seismic Survey
Eastern Indonesia, Indonesia
Searcher Seismic in conjunction with DMNG and Nordic Maritime completed the acquisition of the 3,535 km Halmahera 2D Non-Exclusive Seismic Survey and all data is now available for immediate delivery. The survey which commenced in January 2010 is located in the Halmahera Sea over the main parts of the South Halmahera Basin, an area which is relatively unexplored with no prior exploration wells having been drilled.
The Halmahera survey is located over a continental crust segment between the Philippine Oceanic Plate, the Australian Continental Plate and the Molucca Sea Plate. Data shows thicknesses of over 8,000m in some parts of mostly Tertiary sediments, with evidence of Palaeogene rifting and extension, and multiple phases of compression forming large structures throughout the basin. Eocene coals have also been found onshore in the area suggesting the possibility of an active hydrocarbon system.
The survey has acquired a regional 15 km x 15 km 2D long offset seismic grid over an area which is greater than 32,000 km2. The key objective of the Halmahera 2D Non-Exclusive Seismic Survey is to understand the petroleum prospectivity of the untested basin. Initial processing of the data suggests large scale compressional episodes have provided the potential for “mega” traps within this frontier exploration opportunity.
The Halmahera 2D Non-Exclusive Seismic Survey also provides a suite of additional deliverables including AVO and gather products.
