Searcher Commences Reprocessing of 2D Seismic Data in WA's Browse Basin

Searcher Seismic reported Friday that it has commenced the Pre-Stack Depth Migration (PSDM) reprocessing of 4,350 miles (7,000 kilometers) of 2D seismic data in the Browse Basin, Western Australia.

The project comprises broadband PSDM reprocessing of Searcher’s existing Vampire 2D Seismic Survey, acquired in 2010 with a 5 mile (8 kilometer) streamer that ties key exploration wells in the Browse Basin, and includes coverage to the 2016 Australian Acreage Release.

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

The PSDM reprocessing, being undertaken by WesternGeco, provides a high value solution for understanding the Browse Basin in a regional context. The final PSDM data will be available in last quarter of 2016.
