Searcher Partners DownUnder GeoSolutions in NWS Seismic Project

Searcher Seismic Pty Ltd. reported Monday a commercial agreement with DownUnder GeoSolutions to market and license the Monodon Ultracube.

The Monodon Ultracube consists of approximately 5,676 square miles (14,700 square kilometers) 3D and 1,243 miles (2,000 kilometers) 2D reprocessed data in the prospective Northern Carnarvon Basin of the North West Shelf, Western Australia.

The project incorporates a total of 16 individual 3D surveys and three 2D surveys shot between 1982 and 2004 and includes the reprocessing from field tapes using a state-of-the-art flow and cutting edge algorithms that include industry leading linear noise removal and regularization (DUG Reg).

Rachel Masters, Global sales manager for Searcher Seismic, said the project has excellent coverage of several areas included in the proposed 2015 Australian acreage release.  

 “Large scale 3D surveys of this size are invaluable for geological interpretation and basin modelling applications, and we are confident our clients will be able to utilize this data to evaluate the acreage in the area,” Masters added.

The reprocessed data has been merged prior to anisotropic (TTI) pre-stack depth migration incorporating multi-iteration tomographic model building.

Data from all stages of the processing are available, including image gathers and angle stacks.

The Monodon Ultracube brings Searcher’s 3D database in Australia to over 22,008 square miles (57,000 square kilometers).
