Solwara 3D

The first MultiClient 3D in Papua New Guinea has been broadband reprocessed with impressive results
Website Map for Survey Solwara MC3D
The Solwara MC3D survey was acquired in 2011 and has now been reprocessed with significant uplift on the original data. The Gulf of Papua is a proven hydrocarbon province with gas/condensate accumulations previously discovered in several reef build-ups.
Proven hydrocarbon province with gas/condensate accumulations at Pandora, Uramu and Pasca. There is significant potential for the development of slope and basin floor fans in both stratigraphic and fault related structural traps, as well as Miocene carbonate plays.
