Searcher in the Philippines

Philippines Prospectivity

Most of the Philippines is generally characterised by mobile arcs, accretionary terrains and spreading centres resulting in an incredibly interesting area for exploration. 

Searcher’s regional seismic surveys provide the first consistent link between the basins to better define the tectonic framework of the most important petroleum basins and to improve the imaging of the lower sedimentary sections and basement.

Previously unrecognised in the East Palawan Basin, modern seismic data revealed a 10 km depocentre which was designated the Mialara Sub-basin. Regional evaluation indicates potential for multiple play types, large structures and several proven petroleum systems in Western Philippines to be present in the Eastern region.
