Searcher Seismic in cooperation with BGP, is pleased to announce a major multi-client campaign consisting of three separate surveys totalling 12,500km of 2D data and 566 km2 of 3D data.
The BGP Explorer has been contracted to acquire the projects and is scheduled to arrive in Australia in early January to commence the work which is expected to take approximately 5 months.
The two 3D surveys are prospect focused, while the 12,500 km 2D is a reconnaissance survey covering both open and held acreage surrounding the recent Phoenix Oil discovery in the Bedout Sub Basin.
In addition to the 2D survey, a comprehensive prospectivity study has been commissioned to fast track client’s knowledge in this frontier area.
Rachel Masters, Global Sales Manager for Searcher Seismic, said the 2D survey is the largest Searcher has undertaken in Australian waters and brings Searcher’s newly acquired Australian multi-client 2D library to over 30,000 km in total.
Ms. Masters also commented that the industry is certainly excited following the recent Phoenix South oil discovery and Searcher is pleased to once again be leading the way into these frontier exploration opportunities.
