In co-operation with BGP, Searcher Seismic (Searcher) has announced the completion of the Solomon Sea Broadband 2D seismic survey in Papua New Guinea.

Comprising approximately 3600 km, this survey spans the underexplored Cape Vogel and Bougainville Basins, as well as the unexplored New Ireland Basin.

Rachel Masters, Global Sales Manager for Searcher Seismic, has explained that the survey follows the recent spark in activity offshore the Gulf of Papua, where modern broadband processing techniques unveiled exciting new potential in the area.

“Given the complex tectonic history of the basins, the Solomon Sea 2D covers and industry’s continued interest in the region, Searcher is excited to uncover the potential of northern Papua New Guinea,” Masters added.

Fast track pre-stack time migration (PSTM) data will be made available by December 2017, with the final PSDM data expected early 2018. A regional study incorporating both existing and new has expanded Searcher’s 2D seismic coverage offshore Papua New Guinea to approximately 80 000 km.
