Searcher Seismic, in cooperation with BGP, has completed the acquisition of the Triok broadband non-exclusive 2D seismic survey in the Northern Basins of Papua New Guinea.

Following the acquisition of the Solomon Sea non-exclusive 2D in the northern basins of Papua New Guinea, the Triok broadband non-exclusive 2D seismic survey consists of 3,845 km (2,389 mi) of 2D long-offset, high-resolution, broadband seismic and offers regional coverage of the Cape Vogel basin and Huon Gulf.

Andrew Weller, Asia-Pacific Manager for Searcher Seismic, said the survey will be the key to unlock several questions and understanding of Northern Papua New Guinea as well as the prospectivity of the Northern Basins.

"Modern and historic seismic coverage in the area is sparse and thus the survey has been designed to understand the tectonic history and image deep structures within the areas. The Triok Broadband Non-Exclusive 2D Seismic Survey will provide new insight into unexplored areas of Papua New Guinea and provide further knowledge into the area's architecture and regional (basin?) evolution.", Dr Weller added.

Initial results suggest a significant Mesozoic section with affinities to the prospective Gulf with several plays to investigate including carbonate build-ups, pinch-outs and incised channels.

The survey was completed in October 2018 and is PSDM processed.
