Offshore Western Australia 2D seismic survey set
Partners Searcher Seismic and BGP have acquired the Bibby non-exclusive 2D seismic survey in the Bedout sub-basin and Broome platform offshore Western Australia.
The survey will cover 12,300 km (7,643 mi) of 2D long-offset, high-resolution broadband data over 2x4, 4x8, and 8x8 km grids.
The survey is being acquired by the BGPExplorer using Sercel Sentinel solid streamers, Bolt Source equipment, and continuous recording. The seismic data processing will be conducted by DownUnder GeoSolutions. Deliverables will initially be provided through a DUG Broad PSTM flow to deliver final data, which is expected from June 2015.
“Substantial potential appears to exist not only in and around the Phoenix South area, but up-dip on the flanks of the basin, where the results of Keraudren-1 demonstrate significantly better quality reservoirs exist within the Triassic sediments,” said Rachel Masters, global sales manager for Searcher.
“The results also highlight the potential for oil to migrate up onto the adjacent Broome platform into accumulations analogous to the Stag, Gwydion and Cornea fields elsewhere in the region,”
In addition to the Bibby 2D survey, Searcher, in conjunction with Insight Petroleum, has recently completed an offshore Canning area prospectivity Study.
