Seismic Consortium to Begin Multi-client Survey in Sarawak Basin
Global provider of energy data and intelligence TGS together with PGS and Schlumberger’s exploration data business WesternGeco have secured pre-funding for a 6,400 square kilometer multi-client 3D survey commencing in October in the Sarawak Basin, offshore Malaysia. The survey is the first phase of a multi-year contract awarded by Petronas in 2020 through competitive bidding to acquire and process up to 105,000 square kilometers of multi-client 3D data over a 5-year period in the Basin.
The first phase of the survey will be acquired by PGS’ Ramform Sovereign using multi-sensor GeoStreamer technology and is expected to take approximately 4 months.
The survey area covers acreage included in the Malaysia Bid Round 2021 and fast-track results will be delivered in time for block evaluation. Future acquisition phases are subject to securing sufficient pre-funding.
