Searcher Seismic, DUG unite on 3D project
Searcher Seismic has announced a commercial agreement with DownUnder GeoSolutions (DUG) to market and license the Monodon Ultracube.
The Monodon Ultracube consists of approximately 14,700 km2 3D and 2,000 km 2D reprocessed data in the prospective Northern Carnarvon Basin of the North West Shelf, Western Australia.
According to the company, the project incorporates a total of sixteen individual 3D surveys and three 2D surveys shot between 1982 and 2004 and includes the reprocessing from field tapes using a state-of-the-art flow and cutting edge algorithms that include industry leading linear noise removal and regularisation (DUG Reg).
Rachel Masters, Global Sales Manager for Searcher Seismic, said the project has “excellent coverage of several areas included in the proposed 2015 Australian acreage release”.
“Large scale 3D surveys of this size are invaluable for geological interpretation and basin modelling applications, and we are confident our clients will be able to utilise this data to evaluate the acreage in the area,” Rachel Masters added.
The reprocessed data has been merged prior to anisotropic (TTI) pre-stack depth migration incorporating multi-iteration tomographic model building.
The Monodon UltracubeTM brings Searcher’s 3D database in Australia to over 57,000 km2.
