Polarcus Surveys Petrel Field for Neptune Energy

Neptune Energy said it has begun seismic surveys in the Petrel field, located in the Bonaparte Basin of Australia.

The study will expand the area of seismic data Neptune holds and increase the quality and breadth of data to allow Neptune and its partners to plan for the future.

Neptune, on behalf of the Petrel JV, has entered into a non-exclusive data licensing agreement with Polarcus to acquire the Petrelex 3D seismic survey.

“The Bonaparte Basin presents exciting growth opportunities for Neptune, and Petrel may play a significant role in our future aspirations for the area. We look forward to working closely with our partners as we deepen our knowledge of Petrel in order to define the potential for further development,” said Janet Hann, managing director of Neptune Energy Australia.

Neptune holds 54% of the project and alongside its partners Santos (40.25%) and Beach Energy (5.75%) is investing in new broadband technology over an expanded area in order to get a better understanding of the significant potential resources that Petrel holds.

Polarcus secured approval for an environmental plan allowing acquisition of new 3D multi-client data to be acquired across the field.

The Polarcus Asima vessel began the campaign on November 30, and will continue into late January, subject to operational conditions, covering 2,900 square kilometers of territory.

Data from the survey will be available in Q4 2020.
