Phase 1 Processing of Northern Carnarvon Basin Multi-Client Survey Completed
Comparison of the new broadband data with nearby legacy data shows a spectacular increase in image quality and reveals new exploration opportunities.
The survey has been processed by CGG’s Perth and Melbourne centers, using the company’s latest high-end subsurface imaging technology including pre-stack depth migration (PSDM) and advanced demultiple algorithms to provide the highest-resolution images. Processing of Phase 2 of the survey is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2016.
Sophie Zurquiyah, Chief Operating Officer, Geology, Geophysics & Reservoir, CGG, said: “As we anticipated, the new broadband data from our Davros survey is delivering deeper and clearer images than previously seen in this area. As a result of the exceptional penetration power of the BroadSeis low frequencies, at least 20 km of sediment is visible. When combined with our advanced imaging technologies, this new data shows exceptional clarity of the deep geological structure and dramatically enhances understanding of this prospective area.”
CGG employs more than 6,500 people around the world, all with a Passion for Geoscience and working together to deliver the best solutions to its customers.
