Shearwater GeoServices to undertake 4D baseline survey work for Woodside
Shearwater GeoServices has won a contract from Woodside for carrying out 4D baseline survey work over the Scarborough and Jupiter gas fields in the Carnarvon Basin in Australia.
The 4D baseline survey is likely to take two-three months to acquire and will be executed by Shearwater GeoServices’ Geo Coral research/survey vessel, which is fitted with multi-component sensor streamers.
Shearwater GeoServices said that the survey is intended to begin in Q3 2022.
The aim of the 4D baseline survey is to deliver a modern, strong high-definition survey for development planning, and eventually be used as the baseline for time-lapse data in the case of acquiring future monitoring seismic surveys.
Irene Waage Basili — Shearwater GeoServices CEO said: “This new award by Woodside demonstrates continuing commitment to invest in 4D time-lapse for development and reservoir management of their natural gas resources.
“Natural gas is a key low carbon fuel for the future, and high-end seismic surveys are a critical tool for advanced management of these resources.”
The Scarborough and Jupiter gas fields are part of the Greater Scarborough fields, which are projected to have 13.0 TCF (2C, 100%) of dry gas.
