Polarcus Starts Australia Shoot

Polarcus has kicked off a new RightBAND multi-client project over the Vulcan Sub-basin, offshore the North West Shelf, Australia.

The Cygnus 3D Survey is being acquired with joint investment from Spectrum and DownUnder GeoSolutions, and is supported by industry funding. The survey will comprise a minimum of 4,000 square kilometers and is designed to provide exploration companies with a basin-wide high quality broadband 3D seismic dataset over this proven hydrocarbon province.

Historically, sub-optimal acquisition and processing strategies have not been able to address the geological and geophysical challenges including the energy absorption and multiple issues caused by the thick Late Cretaceous-Tertiary carbonates.

Polarcus will acquire this survey using a XArray configuration: 10 x 112.5m x 8,100m with a 12.5m triple source shot interval and continuous recording, delivering 33% improved cross line sampling with real data (no interpolation). Processing will be done by DownUnder GeoSolutions through a broadband Pre-SDM workflow and final processed data will be available from Q3, 2016 with Pre-STM fast track data available from Q1, 2016.
