MELBOURNE, Australia – The Polarcus Naila has completed the Beehive 3D seismic survey over the WA-488-P permit in the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, 60 km (37 mi) from Yelcher Beach in Australia’s Northern Territory.

According to license partner Melbana Energy, a new lead was identified during planning of the survey, the main aim of which had been to improve definition of the 1.6-Bboe Beehive prospect.

The survey area was subsequently extended by around 100 sq km (38.6 sq mi) to provide coverage over the new lead – Egret – which is partially within the boundary of the permit.

Santos and Total are fully funding the survey.
