Sabah & Sarawak

Offshore northwest Borneo remains one of the least explored basins in the world. The Sabah Trough provided a new play opener, and Tepat lies within the footprint of our massive Sabah MultiClient 3D. Further opportunities are being targeted in Sarawak.

This vast multisensor Sabah MC3D survey provides the best opportunity to unlock the petroleum potential of the enticingly prospective offshore Sabah province. It was the first 3D MultiClient survey in Malaysia and is one of the largest in the world, with over 47 000 sq. km of high-quality 3D data already in our library and a 3600 sq. km extension ongoing in 2023.

Sabah multisensor 3D data is ideal for both optimized infill development and exploring new opportunities in established plays in this exciting hydrocarbon province.

The phased acquisition approach added a host of new prospective areas over the inboard trend to our initial coverage of the outboard basins.  The area comprises Miocene-Pliocene turbidite complexes, reservoirs trapped in complex fold and thrust structures, and stratigraphic settings.

The Sabah MC3D sets a benchmark for high-quality regional datasets that can improve understanding of the regional petroleum systems and also allow prospect-scale AVO analysis of prospects and leads within the entire offshore Sabah Basin.

Further south along the Borneo coastline lies Sarawak, the focus for a second significant MultiClient project. Phase 2 in Sarawak targets the North Luconia Province.
