Searcher Seismic, in cooperation with BGP, has completed the acquisition of the Triok broadband non-exclusive 2D seismic survey in the Northern Basins of Papua New Guinea.
The Triok survey comprises of 3,845 kilometers of 2D long-offset, high-resolution, broadband seismic and offers an extensive regional coverage of the Cape Vogel Basin and Huon Gulf.
Andrew Weller, Asia-Pacific manager for Searcher Seismic, said: “Modern and historic seismic coverage in the area is sparse and thus the survey has been designed to understand the tectonic history and image deep structures within the areas. The Triok broadband non-exclusive 2D seismic survey will provide new insight into unexplored areas of Papua New Guinea and provide further knowledge into the area’s architecture and regional evolution.”
Initial results suggest a significant Mesozoic section with affinities to the prospective Gulf with several plays to investigate including carbonate build-ups, pinch-outs and incised channels.
