Synterra has successfully completed a 42km2 transition zone TZ 3D Seismic Survey in Western Australia for Norwest Energy.
The project was managed by Synterra who oversaw a range of technical work from seven sub-contractor companies over two months.
Innovation went a long way in reducing the costs for the operator, by utilising land-based seismic recording equipment and custom-made flotation devices. This seismic acquisition method ensured the seismic survey was executed whilst exerting a minimal impact on the environment, which was a key performance requirement of the approved Environment Plan.
The major project objectives were to:
- Design and acquire high quality seismic data over the project area to meet the client’s commitments and business objectives
- Manage the project, including all sub-contractors, safely and in accordance with all relevant laws, standards, regulations, and applicable procedures
- Ensure appropriate communication and consultation were maintained between the Client, Synterra, sub-contractors, and local industry to establish internal and external project approvals that align with technical and operational requirements
- Minimize the survey’s impact on the environment and the local stakeholders
More than two-thirds of the personnel on the project were hired locally (within 350km), with additional resources and personnel acquired from around Australia and North America. First planning for the project commenced in early 2018 with project completion in early July 2019 after 6 weeks of operations.
