Searcher commences 7,000 km 2D broadband PSDM project in the Browse Basin

29 Jul 2016

Searcher Seismic is pleased to announce the PSDM reprocessing of 7,000km of 2D seismic data in the Browse Basin, Western Australia has commenced.

The project comprises broadband PSDM reprocessing of Searcher’s existing Vampire 2D Seismic Survey and includes coverage to the 2016 Australian Acreage Release.

Originally acquired in 2010 with an 8 km streamer, the Vampire 2D Seismic Survey ties key exploration wells in the prolific Browse Basin, Western Australia.

Initially designed for industry as an invaluable tool for understanding the regional structural and stratigraphic framework of the Browse Basin, the PSDM reprocessing takes advantage of recent technological advancements to further unlock the potential of this highly prospective area.

 “Applying broadband deghosting not only improves the end result, but allows greater resolution for the PSDM velocity model building at all levels,” Mr Joshua Thorp, Geoscience Manager for Searcher Seismic said.

“Implementing an anisotropic PSDM workflow improves both the quality of the data and more importantly, the AVO attributes derived from this long-offset well tie dataset, Mr Thorp added.

The PSDM reprocessing is being undertaken by WesternGeco and provides a high value solution to those wanting to understand the Browse Basin in a regional context.

Final PSDM data will be available in Q4, 2016.
