PERTH, Australia -- Searcher Seismic and DMNG have begun a 3,882-km (2,412-mi) 2D seismic survey in the South Halmahera basin, offshore Indonesia.

The partners will acquire a 15 km x 15 km (9 mi x 9 mi) 2D long-offset seismic grid covering 32,000 sq km (12,355 sq mi).

The companies say the survey’s objective is to explore the postulated continental crust wedged between the oceanic Pacific plate to the east and the Molucca Sea to the west.

Final data processing is scheduled for completion in May.
