Searcher Seismic expands Argentinian seismic database

Searcher Seismic, an independent seismic data acquisition company, has expanded its Offshore Argentina Seismic and Well Database being carried out in anticipation of the 2018 Argentina Offshore Bidding Round 1.

In a statement on Tuesday Searcher Seismic noted that, since late 2016, it has been collating, organizing, reimaging, interpreting, and evaluating a vast amount of offshore data from the Argentina continental shelf areas.

The original data required considerable adjustments, editing, and QC enhancement, which allows the industry to utilize the rectified data sets for further analysis.

Searcher now holds 11,171 km of pre-STM broadband reprocessed data and over 100,000 km post-STM processed open file 2D, and 1,865 square-kilometer 3D.

According to the company, several of these surveys contain multiple versions of processing adding another 40,000 km.

The well database includes 67 enhanced well completion reports with supporting data and 62 digital well files with a conditioned LAS dataset.

Searcher added that the extensive seismic and well coverage had also enabled a detailed post-well analysis on 65 wells of the Lower Cretaceous Springhill Formation. This is the main reservoir target in most of the wells drilled to date.

The expanded seismic data is an addition to the Offshore Argentina Basin Analysis Report and GIS project completed by Searcher last year.

This project incorporated depth and isopach maps, tectonic reconstructions, a geochemical atlas, and play maps covering 18 stratigraphic sequence units from Permo-Triassic to present day.

Earlier this year Searcher Seismic announced the expansion of its Argentinian Multi-Client library by offering over 97,000 km of seismic data and a comprehensive atlas and analysis of offshore wells.
