The program is expected to last for approximately 60 days and has strong industry funding, PGS said on Monday.

The Ramform Hyperion vessel will acquire the survey. The Ramform Hyperion is a 3D seismic vessel with a length of 104 meters and an aft beam of 70 meters.

During the two-month program, 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 at the end of April 2020.

While the Ramform Hyperion was in port on January 27, PGS hosted PNG government and industry guests onboard the vessel. This is the first time a Ramform Titan-class vessel has visited PNG.
