PERTH, WA, 21 September 2020 – Searcher, a leading service provider of global multi-client geoscience products for exploration & production companies, today announced the expansion of its Argentina data library with the Onshore Mendoza Explorers Package.
The Onshore Mendoza Explorers Package includes 2D and 3D seismic and well data curated specifically for explorers evaluating the prospective Neuquen and Cuyo Basins in the Mendoza province of Argentina, with both significant conventional and unconventional remaining potential. Including a long drilling history which began in 1887 in the Cuyo Basin and the presence of the Vaca Muerta world class source rock, as well as proven prolific reservoirs with many traps still undrilled, this is a very exciting Province in which to explore.
The Mendoza rectified seismic consists of 2D and 3D vintage seismic data in which Searcher has applied its proprietary post-stack reprocessing method. This method was applied to rectify navigation, metadata, amplitude, phase, and time to create a contiguous database that can be easily loaded into any interpretation software. The dataset comprises of circa 40,000 km of 2D and 10,000 square kms of 3D seismic surveys.
The Mendoza Well Atlas consists of 50 wells where Searcher’s G&G team, Discover Geoscience, has undertaken a post-drill well analysis of the key exploration and discovery wells across the basins. The resulting well atlas covers both conventional and unconventional plays.
Karyna Rodriguez, Vice President Global New Ventures at Searcher, said the package is fully supported by the Mendoza provincial government and aligns with the proposed onshore acreage release which signifies an exciting time for explorers in the region.
“Onshore seismic data is notoriously difficult and time consuming to access, verify and load. The project brings all available data together into a seamless package with access provided via a simple web interface allowing screening and downloading from anywhere in the world. It really is a game changer and enables the Mendoza government to showcase the acreage on offer to a global audience.”
The onshore data library complements Searcher’s offshore coverage which consists of 156,000 km of 2D, 12,000 square kilometres of 3D, 19,000 km of broadband reprocessed 2D, an extensive well database and a regional study.
