The survey, in cooperation with the Department of Petroleum and Energy (DPE) and project partner BGP, comprises ~17,000 km (10,563 mi) of 2D long-offset, high resolution, broadband seismic over the Gulf of Papua.
The BGP Explorer has now mobilized for the project.
Rachel Masters, global sales manager for Searcher, said Haere is a grid that will assist the re-interpretation of the geology in the Gulf of Papua, along with the identification of prospective structural and stratigraphic trends that can be used for regional evaluations and future detailed seismic survey designs.
“Deep grabens in the area are believed to contain extensive Mesozoic and Palaeozoic sediments, which may be associated with multiple unexplored petroleum systems, highlighting the prospectivity of the Gulf of Papua,” Masters said.
The new survey brings Searcher’s total data library in the Gulf of Papua to 58,000 km (36,039 mi).
Fasttrack data deliveries will commence in 1Q 2016.
