Searcher Seismic informed that BGP Pioneer has started acquisition of the Buscador near-shore 2D seismic survey, offshore Mexico.
The project comprises 11,200 km of high quality, long-offset 2D data and targets the near shore areas covering rounds 2, 3 and 4, the company explained.
The data, which will be processed at DownUnder GeoSolution’s Houston facility, covers both proven mature and semi-mature regions and also enters into shallow-water areas with limited, to no drilling activity to date.
“The survey has been designed to tie key exploration wells and to also establish a regional framework for the entire prospective near-shore Mexican area,” said Rachel Masters, global sales manager for Searcher.
The survey design was optimised using Searcher’s Seisintel database, the company added.
“Considering the vast amount of modern data recently acquired in Mexico, it was invaluable to use the Seisintel database during planning to ensure all lines are uniquely positioned as well as being complementary to the existing data,” Masters said.
