Comprising ~3,600 km, the Solomon Sea Broadband 2D Seismic Survey spans the underexplored Cape Vogel and Bougainville Basins as well as the unexplored New Ireland Basin.
The survey follows the recent spark in activity offshore the Gulf of Papua, where modern broadband processing techniques unveiled exciting new potential in the area.
Given the complex tectonic history of the basins the Solomon Sea 2D covers and industry’s continued interest in the region, Searcher is excited to uncover the potential of northern PNG.
