WEST PERTH, Australia – Searcher Seismic, in cooperation with the Philippines Department of Energy, and in conjunction with SeaBird Exploration, reports that acquisition of the Mialara 2D seismic survey, east of Palawan in the Philippines, is now complete.
The 5,000-km (3,107-mi) survey covers a 10 by 10 km (6 by 6 mi) grid in the Mialara sub-basin and includes coverage over the PECR5 bid round blocks 4, 5, and 6.
Fast-track data will be available in December to ensure ample time for evaluation of the blocks for the PECR5 bidding round.
Rachel Masters, global sales manager for Searcher Seismic, says that the Mialara 2D survey follows, and provides infill to, Searcher's Pala-Sulu regional multi-client 2D survey, which highlighted the prospectivity of the East Palawan basins.
The Mialara 2D seismic survey was acquired in addition to the recently completed Pinatubo 2D seismic survey in West Luzon, which brings Searcher’s total data library in the Philippines to 19,000 km (11,806 mi).
