This is the start of a multi-year contract awarded by Petronas in 2020 to the Sabah-Sarawak seismic consortium, through competitive bidding to acquire and process up to 105 000 sq. km of MultiClient 3D data over a 5-year period in the Sarawak Basin. Phase 1 will be ca 8400 sq. km.
Targets the Luconia province, which consists of Tertiary clastic and carbonate targets and is part of the greater northwest Borneo Sundaland geological province.
Acquisition tailored to the targets and water depths in the area, using a wide-tow source and a broadband multisensor GeoStreamer configuration of 14 streamers each 8025m, with a streamer separation of 93.75m.
