Shearwater GeoServices Holding AS has been awarded the largest-ever 4-D seismic campaign in the Asia Pacific region covering up to six fields operated by Woodside in Australia, the company said on Nov. 18.
The campaign, planned to commence in fourth-quarter 2019, covers new 4-D acquisition over the Pluto, Brunello, Laverda, Cimatti and Vincent fields with an option for one additional field. The 4-D seismic campaign will improve Woodside’s understanding of the fields’ production performance over time and provide data to guide future field developments. This is the second 4-D seismic campaign award by Woodside to Shearwater following the baseline 4-D program in Senegal earlier this year.
“By using Isometrix, the world’s most advanced multi-sensor seismic acquisition technology, Woodside will get high-quality 4D seismic data to support future field activities,” Irene Waage Basili, the CEO of Shearwater GeoServices, said. “Our Isometrix equipped vessels have been the 4D towed-streamer technology of choice through the North Sea summer season, and we are very pleased to see Woodside choose this platform for their extensive 2019-2020 North West Australia 4D campaign.”
The campaign will be executed using the Amazon Conqueror, one of the world’s most advanced seismic vessels, purpose built for environmentally friendly seismic acquisition, and equipped with Isometrix the leading multi-component multi-sensor seismic streamer system.
