Searcher said on Monday that the Offshore Peru OpenSeis Seismic Dataset consists of both 2D and 3D vintage seismic data, which has been rectified in a post-stack reprocessing method.

The data package comprises of 44,389 km of 2D and 15,526 km2 of 3D seismic data along the coast of Peru.

Offshore Peru offers high impact, moderate risk exploration in shallow water, with high prospectivity in multiple, unexplored basins, supported by Perupetro that is welcoming foreign investment, Searcher explained.


OpenSeis reprocessing


Searcher has applied its proprietary OpenSeis post-stack reprocessing method to the Peruvian database to rectify navigation, metadata, amplitude, phase and time to create a contiguous database. The Offshore Peru OpenSeis dataset consists of 19 rectified and merged 2D seismic surveys and 21 rectified and merged 3D seismic surveys.

According to the seismic company, offshore Peru already has a proven prolific oil play and prospectivity within multiple basins containing both thick reservoir seal pairs and a rich array of structural traps, yet offshore Peru remains dramatically under-explored.

Hydrocarbon fields both on and offshore along the north coast in the Tumbes-Progreso and Talara extensional basins currently contribute over 1.8 billion barrels of domestic oil production.

To the south of these producing fields lie 5 additional offshore basins where little to no exploration activity has been undertaken to date.
