WEST PERTH, AustraliaSearcher Seismic will co-operate with Perupetro on four new projects as part of its offshore Peru multi-client campaign.

This will offer wide-ranging exploration data that will have benefit from modern processing, interpretation and digitizing techniques, the company added.

Searcher has started reprocessing 25,700 km (15,969 mi) of vintage 2D field data for the Huayno 2D pre-stack reprocessing project, the aim being to provide a more consistent, regional grid covering the country’s offshore basins, tying as many wells, leads, and prospects as possible.

The Peru Offshore Rectified Seismic Data report will cover all existing 2D and 3D offshore seismic, rectified and loaded into Searcher’s new Saismic platform for consistent and simple access for explorers.

The Peru Offshore Well Atlas will comprise 63 offshore wells, with the well reports enhanced and organized prior to interpretation including evaluation, risk segmentation and failure/success analysis.

Finally, the Offshore Prospectivity: A Review of Peru’s Offshore Basins report will provide a regional play-based evaluation of the offshore basins based on the interpretation of available public domain data.

This study will apply a multi-disciplinary approach with an emphasis on geology, geophysics (seismic, magnetics and gravity) and geochemistry for managing ongoing evaluation of the area.

Rachel Masters, VP of Project Development for Searcher, said: “Offshore Peru offers high impact, moderate risk exploration in shallow water, with high prospectivity in multiple, relatively unexplored basins, together with Perupetro welcoming foreign investment.”
