Synterra Technologies successfully completed a 2D Dynamite Seismic Survey in the Taranaki Basin, New Zealand
Synterra Technologies recently completed acquisition of 20 kms of 2D Seismic in the Taranaki region of New Zealand. The terrain was quite steep and undulating which meant that seismic vibrators were not able to be used, instead dynamite was used as the energy source. Synterra contracted a local drilling firm and employed local labour to complete the programme. Synterra also contracted and supervised a local supplier to complete the rehab and restoration of all shot holes.
The objective of the 2D survey was to acquire higher fold, longer offset data with an intention to improve structural imaging, in the hope of defining the lowest closing contour across the two lead targets of investigation/definition, depths/thickness/complexity of petroleum targets and known technical issues needing address.
The Fairfield Z-Land nodal acquisition system was used while the shot firers operated autonomously with the Seismic Source Boombox III controllers to fire the charges.
The survey commenced in April 2018 and was completed in 36 days including 3 days of weather standby.
