Polarcus begins Cygnus survey offshore Australia

Published by
Oilfield Technology,


Polarcus has commenced the latest phase of the Cygnus regional multi-client 3D survey in the Vulcan Sub-basin, offshore north-west Australia. The 1500 km2 Phase 3 South survey, covering the Skua, Swift and Montara area, completes over 7200 km2 of continuous XArray™ Triple Source coverage.

The Cygnus anisotropic PSDM dataset provides exploration geoscientists with an unparalleled and extensive high-quality 3D dataset which allows evaluation of the basin including a number of farm-in opportunities and several areas of open acreage.

The prospectivity of the basin has again been demonstrated as Shell Australia announced a significant gas and condensate discovery with the Bratwurst exploration well which was drilled within the AC/P64 Title. This Title is covered by the Cygnus dataset which has brought new understanding both to the prospect itself and to the surrounding area, helping to bring new life to an underexplored basin.
