Searcher Seismic, a leading service provider of global multi-client geoscience data, acquisition and management services, is pleased to announce its new multi-client projects, Big Buzz 3D Reprocessing and Big Bird 3D Reprocessing in the North Sea, offshore UK.
The Big Buzz 3D consists of 1,568 km2 and Big Bird 3D consists of 730 km2 of broadband reprocessed seismic data. The industry supported datasets are situated in the prolific North Sea over proven hydrocarbon fields.
The projects, supporting 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 and we are looking forward to promoting both projects at the upcoming EAGE conference in June,” said VP of Operations for Searcher, Alan Hopping.
“Searcher is growing a U.K.C.S. dataset of ILX opportunities using reprocessed vintage 3D to support the next evolution in ILX energy security exploration and energy transition (CCUS),” Mr Hopping added.
The Big Buzz 3D Reprocessing and Big Bird 3D Reprocessing projects will be available early in Q3 2022.
