The Duke, owned and operated by Gardline CGG Pte Ltd, has been selected by Geoscience Australia to acquire the Gippsland 2D Infill marine seismic survey offshore Victoria (Australia).
Preparation for the project is underway and the expected start date is 6th April 2015, the company informed.
The Gippsland 2D Infill survey is part of the National CO2 Infrastructure Plan to aid in the identification of potential sites suitable for the long term storage of CO2 in Australia. The survey will cover approximately 800 line kilometres in the Gippsland basin.
An additional multibeam bathymetric/sub-bottom profiling survey will be undertaken to infill between seismic lines at the end of the program.
This is Gardline CGG’s second project related to the National CO2 Infrastructure Plan over the last 3 years and its second project for Geoscience Australia in 2015 following the successful completion of the Houtman 2D survey.
