Solomon Sea Broadband Non-Exclusive 2D Seismic Survey

Solomon Sea Broadband Non-Exclusive 2D Seismic Survey

Comprising ~3,600 km, the Solomon Sea Broadband 2D Seismic Survey spans the underexplored Cape Vogel and Bougainville Basins as well as the unexplored New Ireland Basin. 

The survey follows the recent spark in activity offshore the Gulf of Papua, where modern broadband processing techniques unveiled exciting new potential in the area. 

Given the complex tectonic history of the basins the Solomon Sea 2D covers and industry's continued interest in the region, Searcher is excited to uncover the potential of northern PNG. 

Fast track PSTM data will be made available by December 2017, with the final PSDM data expected early 2018. 

In addition to this, a regional study incorporating both existing and new data will be complete in June 2018.
