Searcher Begins Carnarvon Basin Seismic Data Reprocessing

Searcher Seismic, together with CGG, has started PSDM reprocessing of approximately 1,668 sq kilometers of 3D seismic data in the Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia.

The project comprises broadband PSDM reprocessing of the Western portion of the existing Foxhound 3D seismic survey, acquired by Searcher and CGG, and includes coverage to the 2016 Australian Acreage release.

The survey is split into two portions, the Western cube which lies North-East and on trend to the Chandon, Martell and Io/Jansz fields, and the Eastern portion which lies North-North-East and on trend to the Pluto and Wheatstone fields, Searcher explained.

“Originally acquired in 2009, the Foxhound 3D survey faced many challenging geophysical issues from a rugose seabed, a highly channelized Tertiary section and deep Triassic reefs. Improving the phase control, particularly at the low end, and using an integrated geoscience approach to create a high resolution velocity model will enhance the imaging in the Jurassic and Triassic plays,” Joshua Thorp, geoscience manager for Searcher Seismic said.

“As we’ve seen from our nearby Drop Bear Ultracube data, this will allow exploration teams to move beyond AVO analysis and implement cutting edge QI techniques in this highly prolific basin,” he added.

Final PSDM data will be available in Q3, 2017.

6th Offshore Well Intervention Conference Gulf of Mexico

The Offshore Well Intervention Gulf of Mexico conference (OWI GOM) is returning to Houston, Texas for its sixth year on Wednesday 20 – Thursday 21 November.

Featuring Anadarko, BP, Shell, Chevron, BHGE and Oceaneering, the conference aims to help operators transition to the latest compliance updates, WI systems and business models that enhance safety, quicken well access and improve commerciality.

Across two days, more than 200 delegates, 15 exhibitors and 30 speakers will network together and create solutions to some of the most pertinent industry challenges right now, through a conference programme focused on:

  1. Clarifying compliance updates
  2. Quicker well access and safer well control
  3. ​Understanding HPHT well intervention (systems)
  4. Forecasting well intervention activity, discussing new commercial models and comparing platform options
  5. Best practice riserless well intervention
  6. ​The latest well intervention equipment

For registration, speaking or sponsorship enquiries contact Abigail Clifton on aclifton@offsnet.com; +44 (0) 203 793 8800.
