Australia's Searcher Seismic Pty Ltd. in cooperation with the Philippines Department of Energy, and in conjunction with SeaBird Exploration, has commenced the Mialara 2D seismic survey, East of Palawan in the Philippines.
The approximately 3,106 miles (5,000 kilometers) survey covers a roughly 6.2 by 6.2 mile (10 by 10 kilometer) grid in the Mialara sub-basin and includes coverage over the PECR5 bid round blocks 4, 5 and 6.
Acquisition is due for completion in mid-October. Fast track data will be available to ensure ample time for evaluation of the blocks for the PECR5 bidding round.
Alan Hopping, general manager for Searcher Seismic, said the Mialara 2D survey follows and provides infill to Searcher’s Pala-Sulu regional multi-client 2D survey.
