Modern 3D seismic survey offshore Durban Basin supporting the next phase of exploration
This modern seismic data is essential for further exploration in the Durban Basin. Numerous untested leads and prospects have been identified in the pre-Cretaceous, Lower Cretaceous, Upper Cretaceous and Tertiary sequences.
Play types include deepwater marine sandstones, submarine and basin floor fans, turbidites and sand-filled channel systems of Cretaceous-Tertiary age. Syn-rift fluvial and shallow marine sandstones of Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous and Lower Cretaceous also on-lap flanks of tilted fault-blocks.
Advanced imaging techniques reduce uncertainty of prospects and leads by using GeoStreamer multi-sensor data which is rich in reliable low-frequency information, and deghosted by separating the recorded wavefields.
