Dolphin commences seismic operations on 3D survey offshore AustraliaProjects and Operations // June 22, 2015
Seismic survey specialist Dolphin continues to work on a long lasting seismic operation offshore Australia on the North West shelf, initiating a large 3D SHarp Broadband Multi-Client survey covering approximately 15,000km2.
In cooperation with TGS and supported by major oil companies, Dolphin has mobilised its high capacity 3D vessel Sanco Swift to acquire the North Carnarvon Basin survey covering both newly awarded licensed and open acreage.
Dolphin will perform full broadband seismic processing of the survey data to produce a high quality onboard Post Stack Time Migrated Fast-Track volume followed by the Pre-Stack Time Migrated dataset. All processing will be performed with input from supporting clients.
Prior to the survey Dolphin in collaboration with TGS will complete Phase 1 of approximately 2,500km2 of the Monuments MC 3D survey with the same vessel. This is due to be completed around 25 June.
The acquisition parameters for both these MC surveys utilise 10 streamers with 150m separations and 8,100m offsets.
