Searcher, SeaBird Complete Acheron 2D Seismic Program in WA

Searcher Seismic in conjunction with its project partner SeaBird Exploration announced that the ACHERON Non-Exclusive 2D Seismic Survey was completed on November 28, 2009.

The Acheron 2D seismic survey acquired a total 2,678km of 2D long-offset seismic data immediately to the west of the Bernier Ridge which lies in the southwest of the highly prospective Carnarvon Basin. The survey covers a vast amount of unexplored open acreage which is proposed to be opened for bidding in the 2010 Federal acreage release round, as well has part of existing permit WA-385-P.

The M/V Aquila Explorer commenced acquisition on November 5. Operations Manager Alan Hopping commented, "Excellent weather and project planning meant that both technical and operational downtime had been severely reduced."

He continued to praise the vessel’s management and crew for their "efficient and timely acquisition whilst preserving the quality of the seismic."

Data will be processed at PGS in Perth, Western Australia and the full suite of deliverables are scheduled to be available from April 2010.
