    Polarcus commences 3D multi-client survey offshore Western Australia

    Projects and Operations // January 13, 2015

    Polarcus has commenced seismic acquisition on a Capreolus 3D multi-client project over the Phoenix area that contains the recent Phoenix South-1 oil discovery within the Roebuck Basin, offshore Western Australia.

    The survey is utilizing two high performance 12-streamer Polarcus vessels, Polarcus Amani and Polarcus Asima, operating in tandem in order to maximize production.
     
    The Capreolus 3D multi-client project comprises a substantial 15,000km2 and has been designed by Polarcus' in-house experts in collaboration with the project underwriters to provide a basin-wide high quality broadband 3D seismic dataset over and adjacent to the Phoenix South-1 oil discovery announced in 2014.

    The basin is one of the few remaining underexplored parts of Australia's North West Shelf and considered to have the potential to become a major new oil province.
     
    The data acquisition phase is estimated at approximately eight vessel months (four calendar months), with the resultant data being processed through a pre-stack depth migration routine by DownUnder GeoSolutions in Perth.
     
    Final data products are expected to be available in the second quarter of 2016.
