Sabah - Malaysia

Asia's petroleum exploration playground continues to grow offshore Sabah. In 2018, a discovery well in the Sabah Trough became a new play opener, yet this is still ranked as one of the least explored basins in the world. The new discovery lies within the footprint of our massive Sabah MultiClient 3D.

This vast and expanding multisensor MC3D survey provides the best opportunity to unlock the petroleum potential of the enticingly prospective offshore Sabah province. It is the first 3D MultiClient survey in Malaysia and is one of the largest in the world. Over 47 000 sq. km of high-quality 3D data so far, and there is more to come.

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

Acquisition in 2019, added a host of new prospective areas over the inboard trend of the Sabah basin, adding to 2018 coverage of the outboard basins.  The area comprises Miocene-Pliocene turbidite complexes with reservoirs trapped in complex fold and thrust structures, as well as stratigraphic settings.

The Sabah MC3D sets a new benchmark for high-quality regional datasets that will not only improve understanding of the regional petroleum systems but also allow prospect scale AVO analysis of prospects and leads within the entire offshore Sabah Basin.

The latest acquisition on Sabah brings the total coverage to over 47 000 sq. km
