The Ramform Sovereign, owned by PGS, has commenced acquisition of a multi-client 3D survey in the Sarawak Basin, Malaysia, on behalf of a seismic consortium comprising PGS, TGS and WesternGeco.

The pre-funded MC3D survey over ca 8500 km2 targets the West Luconia province of Sarawak. This area consists of Tertiary clastic and carbonate targets similar to Sabah, being part of the greater northwest Borneo Sundaland geological province.

PGS' seismic vessel Ramform Sovereign is towing an innovative wide-tow source, a broadband multisensor GeoStreamer configuration of 14 streamers each 8025 m long and with a streamer separation of 93.75 m, tailored to the targets and water depths in the area.

The acreage covered in this survey is included in the Malaysia Bid Round 2021 along with other open blocks. Fast-track results will be delivered for early block evaluation.

This is the first phase of a multi-year contract awarded by Petronas in 2020 to the Sabah-Sarawak seismic consortium, through competitive bidding to acquire and process up to 105 000 km2 of multi-client 3D data over a 5-year period in the Sarawak Basin.
