North Sumatra 3D GeoStreamer

PGS is covering the Andaman basin with MultiClient 3D GeoStreamer
Website Map for Survey North Sumatra MC3D
This survey targets the central and western margin of the North Sumatra Basin, expanding the understanding beyond existing discoveries and shelfal-related wells along the southern and eastern margin of the basin.
The current plays are Miocene carbonates, Miocene/Pliocene clastics and an Oligocene syn-rift, with a deeper untested syn-rift play and kitchen extension.
PGS GeoStreamer technology will provide high quality resolution at all depths, from overburden to target structures to allow for better understanding of the rift section and the structural definition of the basement.
