PALAWAN, Philippines – Searcher Seismic, in cooperation with the Philippines Department of Energy, and in conjunction with SeaBird Exploration, has begun its Mialara 2D seismic survey, east of Palawan in the Philippines.
The 5,000 km (3,107-mi) survey over a grid measuring 10 by 10 km (6 by 6 mi) in the Mialara sub-basin includes coverage over the PECR5 bid round blocks 4, 5 and 6.
Acquisition is due for completion in mid-October. Fast track data will be available to ensure ample time for evaluation of the blocks for the PECR5 bidding round.
The Mialara 2D survey follows Searcher’s Pala-Sulu regional multi-client 2D survey, which highlighted the prospectivity of the East Palawan basins and provided justification for the more detailed Mialara 2D survey.
