Ceduna Sub-basin - Australia - 2015

Springboard 3D GeoStreamer

True broadband data in the frontier Ceduna sub-basin offshore South Australia
Website Map for Survey Springboard GeoStreamer MC3D
The Ceduna sub-basin has become a hot spot for exploration activity following gazettal round awards to several major E&P companies and represents a massive and under-explored frontier area. A 40 km 2D well tie to Potoroo-1 was made during acquisition of Springboard MC3D.
The basin’s potential prospective fairways lie within the substantial Late Cretaceous deltaic successions.
The Springboard survey is true broadband Dual sensor 3D seismic data with pre-stack AVO/AVA fidelity. The Springboard and Ceduna surveys have been processed to depth to create one single merged ~20 000 sq.km MC3D volume.
