A consortium made up of PGS, TGS and Schlumberger WesternGeco, the industry’s three largest multiclient companies, has won the tender for the rights to undertake a multiclient seismic programme offshore Sabah.
Offshore Sabah is positioned in an active fold-and-thrust province that is host to a number of proven hydrocarbon accumulations. An extension of the Brunei Baram Delta play, the primary exploration target has been Miocene deltaics with some younger Pliocene. As exploration and drilling progresses into deeper frontier waters, there is potential for new plays in the carbonate and syn-rift section. This large basin is sure to benefit from modern, high resolution broadband 3D seismic necessary to understand both the existing play concepts and new potential plays.
The consortium intends to apply a combination of the industry’s most advanced technology solutions including multi-sensor acquisition using PGS GeoStreamer® and WesternGeco IsoMetrix* marine isometric seismic technology, PGS Towed Streamer EM technology and advanced broadband 2D acquisition and processing techniques.
