Searcher Seismic Commences 3D Reprocessing Project in Australia

Searcher Seismic reported Tuesday that the firm and partner Spectrum have commenced the Olympus 3D Reprocessing Project in the Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia at the DownUnder GeoSolutions’ Perth facility.

The project, which extends northward from the Rankin Platform, covers the reprocessing of 20 existing 3D datasets through a broadband Pre-Stack Time and Depth Migration (PSTM and PSDM) workflow. The purpose of the processing effort will focus on resolving fault seals and imaging complex migration pathways which may prove the key to unlocking further discoveries in the area.

“Given the low oil price environment and constrained budgets, our supporting clients have recognized the benefits of such a project and we are looking forward to seeing both the results of the processing and future drilling campaigns,” Rachel Masters, global sales manager for Searcher, said in the press release.

Full final PSTM products are expected to be available the second quarter of 2017 and PSDM in third quarter of 2017.
