PERTH, Australia –
A second 2D seismic survey offshore southwest Sumatra, Indonesia along the Sundaland margin will add 2,700 km (1,678 mi) of data to infill existing multi-client data, reports TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co.

Data acquisition is underway with the Northern Explorerand completion is expected by the end of this year. The results are aimed at evaluating blocks announced by Migas in the 2010 Second Bid Round and additional blocks expected to be in bid rounds in 2011.

The previous survey revealed a thick sequence of potential reservoir and source rock in the Mentawai-Bengkulu forearc basins, confirmed by a large gravity anomaly. This newest SMi10 project will aid in mapping three unique seismically defined plays along this trend.
