The Echidna Regional Broadband 2D seismic survey comprises of approximately 9,000 km of high quality, long offset broadband 2D seismic data and will be the first comprehensive well-tie survey covering the Atlantic Margin off western Ireland.
The survey will cover the Goban Spur, Porcupine and Slyne Basins, and includes well-tie to over 30 exploration wells.
The survey also incorporates the Connemara and Burren oil fields and the Spanish Point gas discovery.
