Searcher Acquiring Buscador Near-shore 2D Seismic Offshore Mexico

Searcher Seismic Pty Ltd. reported Friday that the seismic vessel BGP Pioneer has commenced acquisition of the 6,959 mile (11,200 kilometer) Buscador Near-shore 2D Seismic Survey, offshore Mexico.

The project will specifically target the near shore areas covering rounds 2, 3 and 4. The acquired data will be processed at DownUnder GeoSolution’s Houston facility, covers both proven mature and semi-mature regions and also enters into shallow-water areas with limited, to no drilling activity to date.

"The survey has been designed to tie key exploration wells and to also establish a regional framework for the entire prospective near-shore Mexican area,” Rachel Masters, global sales manager for Searcher said in the press release.

The survey design was optimized using Searcher’s Seisintel database.

This is the second seismic project for Searcher in the Gulf of Mexico, following the 6,834 square mile (17,700 square kilometer) South Campeche Ultracube 3D Reprocessing project that commenced last month.
