Australia-based Searcher wins seismic survey deals in Oman

April 25, 2022

Muscat – Searcher, an Australia-based leading multi-client data and service provider, announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with the Ministry of Energy and Minerals of Oman to acquire several new seismic surveys and reprocess legacy seismic data both offshore and onshore Oman.

The company in a statement said that reprocessing of offshore legacy data in the Sea of Oman has commenced already and DUG technology have achieved extraordinary uplift by applying a modern broadband processing sequence with diligent multiple removal technologies.

Improving the imaging of the remarkable geology offshore Oman is both resolving uncertainties in the thrusts and fold belt plays and imaging the hitherto illusive stratigraphy below the decollement surface, Searcher said.

‘These insights are revealing an exciting oil prospectivity with unexplored yet significant resource potential. Searcher envisage that the whole 2D and 3D dataset will be reprocessed in this cooperation with the Ministry of Energy and Minerals, in addition to acquisition of new 2D and 3D seismic in 2022-23,’ the company said.

It further said the offshore Oman 2D and 3D rectification project is already completed consisting of 32,000km of 2D plus 2,500 sqkm of 3D legacy data which has been rectified using Searcher’s proprietary post-stack reprocessing method. This resolves issues with navigation, metadata, amplitude, phase and time-shifts, the company added.

Dr Neil Hodgson, vice-president – geoscience at Searcher, said, “We are delighted to announce our strategic partnership with the Ministry of Energy and Minerals in Oman. Our priority is to focus on the exciting offshore basins where we see significant prospectivity. Together with the ministry we will reprocess legacy data and acquire new seismic to reveal new insights into the hydrocarbon system and bring new investors to this oil rich region.”

Searcher is a leading service provider of multi-client geoscience data and products to global energy and resource companies. In addition to extensive global geophysical and geological data libraries that include multi-client 2D and 3D seismic data, magnetics and gravity data, geochemical surveys, digital well databases and prospectivity studies, Searcher also offer advanced technological software products.
