Aurora Ichthys Merge MC3D | PGS

Browse Basin - Australia - 2011/12

Aurora Ichthys Merge MC3D 3D GeoStreamer

New PSDM reprocessing of the Aurora and Ichthys MC3D surveys in the highly prospective Browse Basin
Website Map for Survey Aurora Ichthys Merge MC3D
GeoStreamer acquired data newly reprocessed with the latest PSDM FWI workflow to create a contiguous, high resolution 3D volume over the Ichthys gas field and surrounding acreage within the Browse Basin, from the depocentre of the gas-dominated Caswell Sub-basin to the oil-bearing Yampi Shelf area
The prospective basin fairways lie within the Early-Middle Jurassic extensional phase, and the Late Jurassic-Cenozoic thermal subsidence phase.
True broadband GeoStreamer dual-sensor 3D seismic data acquisition combined with the latest PSDM FWI reprocessing workflow.
