LIBYA: Geotrace Completes Huge Onboard Data Processing

Geotrace has completed one of the world’s largest onboard data processing projects for BP, as operator in its EPSA 4 NOC/LIC/BP exploration contract in BP’s Sirte Basin concession off the coast of Libya.

BP’s first 3D marine survey in Libya’s Gulf of Sirte was one of the world’s largest, covering 17,500 square kilometers. The contract split the area into four tracts of approximately equal area and stipulated onboard processing, including 2D SRM1 and full pre-stack time migration with velocity model picking, within six weeks of last shot for each tract. The aim was to produce a high-quality image for prospect identification and to enable the complete well planning process to begin in 2009 leading to early exploration drilling.
