Polarcus extends 3D seismic survey off northwest Australia

Offshore staff

DUBAI, UAE Polarcus has more funding for its Capreolus 3D seismic survey offshore Australia's northwest shelf. The new funding will add 7,130 sq km (2,753 sq mi) to the project, bring the overall coverage to 22,130 sq km (8,544 sq mi).

Seismic acquisition on the original program started this past January with two Polarcus A-Class 3D seismic vessels using the company's RightBAND technique for broadband data acquisition. The expanded survey is now estimated at approximately 12 vessel months duration overall, and will get an additional Polarcus 3D seismic vessel for part of the program.

Data from Capreolus will be processed through a prestack depth migration routine by DownUnder GeoSolutions in Perth, Australia, with final data products expected to be delivered within 1Q 2016.
