The Big Buzz 3D consists of 1568 km2and Big Bird 3D consists of 730 km2of broadband reprocessed seismic data. The datasets are situated in the prolific North Sea over proven hydrocarbon fields.
The projects, supporting industries infrastructure-led exploration (ILX) strategies, are located around the giant Buzzard Oil field and within tie-back distances to the Kittiwake and Forties field development platforms.
Imaging results are a step change from vintage 3D. The modern processing flow includes broadband, FWI and pre-Stack Depth Migration, supported by geological well and field data. Targeted demultiple and amplitude preserving technologies will enable AVO/AVA to be meaningfully analysed at target level.
Searcher’s ILX reprocessing model is the most cost-effective tool for explorers to high-grade prospects for near-term development. Intermediate processing results from Big Buzz and Big Bird are showing features never seen before on this data.
The Big Buzz 3D Reprocessing and Big Bird 3D Reprocessing projects will be available early in Q3 2022.
