Searcher Wraps Up Solomon Sea Seismic Survey Off PNG

Searcher Seismic, in cooperation with BGP, has completed the Solomon Sea broadband 2D seismic survey offshore Papua New Guinea.

The survey, comprising ~3,600 km spans the underexplored Cape Vogel and Bougainville Basins as well as the unexplored New Ireland Basin.

Rachel Masters, global sales manager for Searcher Seismic, said the survey follows the recent spark in activity offshore the Gulf of Papua, where modern broadband processing techniques unveiled exciting new potential in the area.

Masters said: “Given the complex tectonic history of the basins the Solomon Sea 2D covers and industry’s continued interest in the region, Searcher is excited to uncover the potential of northern PNG.” 

Fast track PSTM data will be made available by December 2017, with the final PSDM data expected early 2018.

A regional study incorporating both existing and new data will be complete in June 2018, the company noted.

The survey expanded Searcher’s 2D seismic coverage offshore Papua New Guinea to ~80,000 km.
