Searcher Seismic Completes 3D Reprocessing Project in Carnarvon Basin

Searcher Seismic Pty Ltd., in conjunction with project partner, Fugro Multi Client Services (FMCS) announced Tuesday that the Dropbear Ultracube 3D reprocessing project in the Carnarvon Basin offshore Western Australia is now complete.

The Dropbear Ultracube is the broadband PSDM reprocessed Willem 3D seismic survey in the Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia, 1,042 square miles (2,700 square kilometers) originally acquired in 2006.  

Rachel Masters, global sales manager for Searcher, said it is becoming increasingly more cost effective to reprocess existing, older surveys with a modern broadband algorithm.

 “The reprocessing objective was to increase the deep Triassic fault block definition and assess the AVO behavior, the results of the processing are impressive”.

The Drop Bear Ultracube also covers the recent Pyxis-1 gas discovery by Woodside.

Searcher is currently undertaking PSDM reprocessing on a number of surveys, including the Lahara 2D Seismic Survey in Papua New Guinea and the Pala Sulu 2D Seismic Survey in the Philippines.
