PGS’s new Aurora MC3D aims to unlock the deeper potential of Australia’s Browse Basin, covering proven oil and gas play fairways

This week PGS commences a significant new GeoStreamer MC3D survey in Australia, covering approximately 7,700 km2 of the prolific Browse Basin offshore NW Australia, over both licensed and open acreage.

Opening up Oil and Gas Play Fairways

The Aurora MC3D survey is on trend with a 13.5TcF gas discovery at Ichthys and also covers the Burnside discovery. It also tracks this play to the southwest.

The eastern flank of the survey is believed to have significant potential for oil in both structural and stratigraphic traps in the lower Cretaceous.

This area is under-explored with just two wells drilled the survey outline. High quality 3D seismic is needed in order to increase geological and structural definition in a geologically complicated area before further drilling GeoStreamer has the bandwidth and penetration to deliver this, as demonstrated in PGS’ 2008 North West Shelf MC2D program in this area.
