The Northern Basins are true frontier regions offering the potential for working petroleum systems.
The Bougainville Basin, Cape Vogel and New Ireland Basin are the three basins offshore NE Papua New Guinea. This frontier region remains largely unexplored with new regional 2D revealing new insights into the deep structure, stratigraphy and evolution of this frontier region.
Following the successful acquisition of the Solomon Sea 2D in the Northern Basins of Papua New Guinea, the Triok Non-Exclusive 2D Seismic Survey comprises of ~3,800 kilometres of 2D long-offset, high-resolution, broadband seismic and offers an extensive regional coverage of the Cape Vogel Basin and Huon Gulf. Gravity and magnetic data has also been acquired and processed and available with seismic data.
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.
Modern and historic seismic coverage in the area is sparse and thus the survey has been designed to understand the tectonic history and image deep structures within the areas. The Triok Non-Exclusive 2D Seismic Survey will provide new insight into unexplored areas of Papua New Guinea and provide further knowledge into the area’s architecture and regional evolution.
