Searcher Seismic, a leading service provider of global multi-client geoscience data, acquisition and management services, is pleased to announce the significant expansion of its South Africa 2D and 3D data library in cooperation with Petroleum Agency of South Africa (PASA).
The Orange Basin has recently astonished the world with the discovery of multiple billion barrels of light oil in Namibia, very close to the border with South Africa. The discovery plays extend into South Africa, and it is into the industries excitement for the Orange Basin that Searcher announces its extended South Africa 2D and 3D rectified seismic dataset which now comprises 107,500 kilometres of 2D data and 8,790 square kilometres of 3D data.
Searcher has applied its proprietary post-stack reprocessing method which rectifies navigation, metadata, amplitude, phase and time to create a contiguous database that can be easily accessed on its web-platform, sAIsmic.
The success in the Orange Basin comes on the back of significant discoveries of gas condensate in South Africa’s Southern Outeniqua Basin in 2019. The dataset facilitates the investigation of the distribution of plays and traps in South Africa and is suitable for preliminary exploration analysis – basin modelling, isopach and play fairway building.
“We congratulate TotalEnergies and Shell on their successes in the Orange Basin and South Outeniqua Basin, and very pleased to also announce the extension of our 2D and 3D data library and to be expanding our presence in South Africa”, said Neil Hodgson, VP Geoscience at Searcher.
“The recent and significant oil discoveries from Venus 1-X and Graff-1 wells in the Orange Basin, Namibia proves the potential of this basin which also extends into South African waters. It is a very exciting time for this region and the long under-valued Orange Basin.”
The South Africa 2D and 3D rectified seismic database is available now on Searcher’s subscription platform, sAIsmic, for easy and instant access to explorers.
Searcher is a leading service provider of multi-client geoscience data and products to global oil & gas and mining exploration and production companies. In addition to extensive global geophysical and geological data libraries that include multi-client 2D and 3D seismic data, magnetics and gravity data, geochemical surveys, digital well databases and prospectivity studies, Searcher also offer advanced technological software products. These products include, Seisintel, an online marine survey and vessel tracking software; sAIsmic, a web platform which provides global seismic data on-demand with native support for deep learning; and GeoClerk, a web-based search engine that utilizes machine learning to source industry related imagery.
