Offshore staff

WEST PERTH, AustraliaSearcher Seismic plans to resume its Silver-Eye broadband 3D seismic survey in the Norwegian Barents Sea in April.

Phase 1, comprising 2,663 sq km (1,028 sq mi), was completed last September. Processing of the data has revealed strong prospects for both conventional and unconventional play models.

Pre-stack time migration (PSTM) data from Phase 1 will be available, with the first PSTM data from this year’s (Phase 2 survey) likely to be issued in November. Phase 2 pre-stack depth migration results should emerge this summer.

According to Jan Gunnar Opsal, country manager for Norway, the survey extension covers existing discoveries and vacant acreage within the APA licensing area.
