Ramform Hyperion will acquire the survey. The Ramform Hyperion is one of the largest, most advanced 3D seismic vessels in the industry with a length of 104 m and an aft beam of 70 m, providing an extremely stable platform for seismic acquisition. During the two month programme, the vessel will be towing a 12 x 8 km x 150 m streamer configuration with a triple-source.

The survey will provide modern 3D data over held and vacant acreage in the frontier Papuan Basin. Fast-track 3D data over Phase 1 will be available end of April 2020.
