PERTH, Australia –Searcher Seismic and project partner BGP have announced a 2015 GroupSeis campaign over the North West Shelf offshore Western Australia.
The 2015 GroupSeis campaign currently includes the acquisition of three individual broadband seismic surveys with further additions being negotiated for the final 2015 time slots.
The current surveys include the 437-sq km (169-sq mi) Quoll 3D seismic survey in the Bonaparte basin, the 500-km (311-mi) Dunnart 2D seismic survey (which includes coverage of theJansz gas discovery), and the 146-sq km (56-sq mi) Numbat 3D seismic survey, both in the Carnarvon basin.
“Logistically the GroupSeis campaigns can be quite challenging to arrange, however, with increased vessel utilization, reduced environmental impact and some major cost savings to be had, the benefits are significant for all involved and our clients and project partners are supporting the concept 100%,” said Rachel Masters, global sales manager for Searcher.
