Perth-based Searcher Seismic introduced the enlargement of its fashionable offshore knowledge library with the completion of the Gulf of Papua Prospectivity Study in Papua New Guinea.
The Gulf of Papua is an enormous space comprising over 187,000 km2. With solely 27 wildcat exploration wells drilled so far in shallow water, a lot of the area stays underneath explored.
The Gulf of Papua Prospectivity Study was undertaken by Discover Geoscience on behalf of Searcher and consists of 5 essential sections; Tectono-Stratigraphic Framework, Tectonostratigraphic Elements, Facies and EOD Mapping, Charge Modelling plus Play Concepts & Leads Inventory.
The Study is being provided to trade as an built-in multi-disciplinary report of the hydrocarbon prospectivity potential throughout your complete Gulf of Papua utilising the wealth of information from Searcher’s Gulf of Papua datasets.
Searcher has essentially the most expansive multi-client geoscience dataset obtainable in Papua New Guinea; together with 77,910 km 2D seismic knowledge (newly acquired and reprocessed), 1,795 sq.km 3D seismic reprocessing, 60,690 sq.km airborne gravity, magnetic and gradiometry knowledge and a Geochemical Study masking your complete Gulf of Papua.
Simon Crellin, Sales Director for Searcher, mentioned Papua New Guinea has change into one of many world’s most fun exploration areas, with important petroleum potential within the Gulf of Papua.
“Modern seismic knowledge has enabled deeper imaging of distinctive tectonic packages and basement which has been utilised within the research, resulting in the identification of a number of new performs inside the Gulf of Papua.
“The research has revealed important prospectivity on this frontier area. Leveraging high-quality seismic knowledge, drop cores, dredge samples, seep knowledge and geochemical evaluation inside this research has enabled us to construct a complete leads stock for the Gulf of Papua”, Mr Crellin added.
The Gulf of Papua Perspectivity Study can also be obtainable alongside the Gulf of Papua seismic datasets.
