PGS completes 3D survey offshore PNG

The Painimaut programme targets a number of play types in the under-explored Papuan Basin in both held and vacant acreage. This survey has strong industry funding. The survey targets the Tertiary carbonate buildups and Mesozoic rift basins adjacent to the Papuan and Eastern Plateaus, as well as pinch-out plays and drapes over deeper structural highs.

The state-of-the-art Ramform Hyperion marine seismic vessel towed a 12 x 8 km x 150-m streamer configuration, with a triple-source, to acquire high-resolution broadband data. PGS imaging teams are now processing these results using the latest seismic imaging workflows, including FWI and a full prestack time and depth workflow.

Full integrity, high-resolution GeoStreamer data will be available in 1Q21. Gravity and magnetic data will also be available.
