Searcher starts seismic survey in Gulf of Papua

Searcher Seismic has informed that the acquisition of the 11,000 km Hahonua 2D seismic survey has started in the Gulf of Papua, offshore Papua New Guinea.

This new acquisition, in partnership with BGP, increases Searcher’s total seismic data library in the region to over 70,000 km.

In addition, Searcher and Gardline have initiated a multi-beam and coring survey; the Davaria Geochemical Survey, covering the entire Gulf of Papua to identify and analyze hydrocarbon seeps.

Rachel Masters, Global Sales Manager for Searcher Seismic, said: “Papua New Guinea continues to be an area of high interest for our clients and these two new projects, when combined with our existing coverage, will provide a unique and comprehensive exploration tool for the entire offshore Gulf of Papua.”
