North West Shelf campaigns

Searcher Seismic Pty Ltd. in conjunction with project partner, BGP, has announced that the 2015 GroupSeis campaign over the North West Shelf, Western Australia, has been conducted. The GroupSeis concept has been developed by Searcher to provide clients with a turnkey solution for the environmental approval, acquisition and processing of small to medium sized seismic surveys.

Rachel Masters, Global sales manager for Searcher, said the GroupSeis campaign is an attractive option for all involved.

“Logistically the GroupSeis campaigns can be quite challenging to arrange, however, with increased vessel utilisation, reduced environmental impact and some major cost savings to be had, the benefits are significant for all involved and our clients and project partners are supporting the concept 100%,” Masters added.

The 2015 GroupSeis campaign currently includes the acquisition of three individual broadband seismic surveys with further additions being negotiated for the final 2015 time slots.

The current surveys include the 437 km2 Quoll 3D seismic survey in the Bonaparte Basin, the 500km Dunnart 2D seismic survey (which includes coverage of the Jansz gas discovery) and the 146 km2 Numbat 3D, both of which are in the Carnarvon Basin.
