Searcher completes acquisition of two new multi-client seismic surveys offshore Norway and offshore Western Australia

29 Jun 2016

Searcher Seismic in cooperation with project partner BGP, are pleased to announce the successful acquisition of a new survey offshore Norway and another offshore Western Australia.

Phase 2 of the Silver-Eye 3D Seismic Survey in the Barents Sea, Norway expands existing Phase 1 3D coverage of the Hammerfest Basin to further highlight the potential of this highly prospective area in the Barents Sea.

Offshore Western Australia, the final phase of the Bilby 2D Seismic Survey has now been acquired bringing the completed project to 14,336 km.

Searcher Seismic Projects - Bilby 2D Seismic Survey and Silver-Eye 3D Seismic Survey

Rachel Masters, Global Sales Manager for Searcher Seismic, said both surveys will greatly assist oil & gas companies with their exploration activities.

“The Silver-Eye 3D Seismic Survey provides 4,548 km2 of excellent quality new broadband 3D data covering the Snøhvit Field, the Goliat Field and the Tornerose discovery.

"In addition, the Silver-Eye 3D covers both north and south flanks of the Hammerfest Basin allowing explorers to extensively evaluate the area.

“The Bilby 2D Seismic Survey, offshore Western Australia, includes coverage to proposed 2016 open acreage and ties both the Phoenix South-1 and Roc-1 wells, with a multi-well appraisal drilling campaign commencing soon.

 “We are very excited by the results of the Bilby survey - the data quality is excellent and has revealed not only leads associated with the Lower Triassic petroleum systems being pursued in the Roc/Phoenix South area, but new play types that were not recognised previously”, Ms Masters added.

Both datasets are being processed by DownUnder GeoSolutions (DUG), with the initial phase data now available for both projects.

Fast track data for Phase 2 of the Silver-Eye 3D Seismic Survey will be available as soon as possible and the final data volume available in Quarter 4, 2016.

Final data for the Bilby 2D Phase 3 will be available in January 2017.
