Searcher supports India Offshore Bid Round with rectified and reprocessed 2D datasets

World Oil Staff December 14, 2022

Searcher, a leading provider of global multi-client geoscience data, announced the release of its East Coast India Rectified and Reprocessed 2D Dataset following the announcement of the India Offshore Bid Round OALP9 2022/3.

To support the OALP9 License Round, Searcher has released its East Coast India Rectified 2D project which consists of 28,000 km of seismic data. Searcher applied its proprietary post-stack reprocessing method which rectifies navigation, metadata, amplitude, phase and time to create a regional dataset that allows for an extremely cost-effective ranking of the acreage.

To complement the rectified 2D data, Searcher reprocessed a 9,650 km subset of this data through a 2022 de-ghosting processing sequence to highlight both the source rock AVO and Reservoir sedimentary systems. Reprocessing was undertaken by Shearwater GeoServices.

“The East India 2D Reprocessing and Rectification datasets provide an essential guide to block evaluation, ranking and basin understanding. Early participation of the rectified and reprocessed datasets is designed to be extremely cost-effective for any operator serious about evaluating the East Coast of India License Round,” commented Neil Hodgson, VP of Geoscience for Searcher.

The Offshore India License Round includes 9 blocks East of India in the Krishna Godavari, Mahanadi and Bengal Basins. These blocks are in both shallow and deep water and largely or completely unexplored with incredible potential.

The East Coast India 2D datasets are available now for instant streaming and download from the cloud on Searcher’s sAIsmic platform.
