SINGAPORE – Shearwater GeoServices Singapore has started shooting a 1,200-sq km (463-sq mi) 3D broadband seismic survey over block A offshore Cambodia.

Operator KrisEnergy is developing the Apsara oil field – the country’s first offshore project – within the concession. 

Shearwater’s vessel SW Vespucci will acquire 200 sq km (77 sq mi) of the 3D data over the Apsara development area.

KrisEnergy wants improved imaging of geological faults and sand bodies to help finalize the design of well trajectories ahead of development drilling for first oil.

The remaining 1,000 sq km (386 sq mi) will be over a large prospective area in the southwest portion of the block, only covered by old 2D seismic lines, in order to improve data quality.
