Searcher to Begin Silver-Eye Phase 2 Acquisition

Searcher Seismic has announced plans for Phase 2 of the Silver-Eye Broadband 3D survey in the Barents Sea, Norway.

Following the successful acquisition of Phase 1, comprising 2,663 square kilometers, Searcher is now acquiring additional broadband 3D data in the area.

Phase 1 of the acquisition was completed in September 2015 with data processing revealing exciting results for both conventional and unconventional play models, supporting the need for Phase 2, the company said.

Acquisition of Phase 2 is scheduled to start in April 2016 with a PSTM data volume being made available in November 2016.

Phase 1 PSTM data will be available in April 2016 with PSDM available in Q3, 2016. Phase 2 final data in both time and depth is expected in early 2017, the company added.

Jan Gunnar Opsal, Country Manager for Searcher Seismic, Norway, said the survey extension covers existing discoveries and vacant acreage within the APA area.

“Searcher is excited to be expanding our 3D library in the Barents Sea and to offer high quality data for evaluating this area of the Hammerfest Basin in the APA, 2017,” Opsal added.
