Polarcus Halfway Through Capreolus Shoot

Oslo-listed seismic contractor, Polarcus, has now reached the 50% completion milestone in the acquisition of the Capreolus 3D multi-client project, the largest single 3D survey ever acquired offshore Australia.

Polarcus will acquire a minimum area of 22,130 sq. km of high resolution broadband 3D seismic data including coverage over the Phoenix South-1 oil discovery and surrounding blocks in an area previously assumed to be gas prone. According to Polarcus, the Capreolus 3D survey will provide multiple opportunities for reduced risk and play-based exploration targeting Triassic and Jurassic structural and stratigraphic traps.

Seismic acquisition kicked off early January 2015 with two Polarcus A-Class 3D seismic vessels, POLARCUS AMANI and POLARCUS ASIMA, operating in simultaneous acquisition mode in order to maximize production.

This operating technique has delivered over 11,000 sq. km of 3D seismic data in less than 3 months. The data is currently being processed through to pre-stack depth migration by DownUnder GeoSolutions (DUG) in Perth, Australia, with final data products expected to be delivered within Q1 2016.
