PERTH, Australia – Searcher has initiated a new multi-client 2D and 3D seismic rectification project offshore South Africa, in collaboration with the Petroleum Agency of South Africa.
This relates to the Outeniqua basin and the Bredasdorp, Infanta, Pletmos, Gamtoos, Algoa and Southern Outeniqua sub-basins.
Searcher has applied its proprietary post-stack reprocessing technique to rectify navigation, metadata, amplitude, phase and time, creating what the company claims is a contiguous database that can be assimilated into any interpretation software.
Neil Hodgson, vice president GeoScience, said: “The Cretaceous source rocks of the Brulpadda-Luiperd trend extend along the margin on the north side of the Agulhas Transform, which provides a depositional onlap for hybrid clastic systems being brought to the basin floor.”
Searcher will include the results on its sAIsmic web platform.
