Location map - Activity: Ceduna Multi-Client 3D Marine Seismic Survey (refer to description)

The geophysical company Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) proposes to acquire a multi-client three-dimensional (MC3D) marine seismic survey (MSS) in the Great Australian Bight (GAB), known as the Ceduna MC3D MSS.
The survey area is located 180 km from the nearest land (mainland South Australia), 475 km west of Port Lincoln and 295 km south west of Ceduna, the closest township. The survey area covers Petroleum Exploration Permits (EPP) 37, 38 and 43, and a small amount of adjacent open acreage areas. The water depths in the survey area are in the range of ~100 to 3,000 m with the shallowest water depths located along the northern and north eastern boundaries of the survey area.
Data acquisition will occur within the survey area, which covers approximately 13,800 km2
The survey will take approximately 5 months to acquire, occurring within the acquisition window of November 2014 to May 2015 (inclusive).  This acquisition window is chosen to avoid adverse weather conditions which occur throughout the winter months and may pose additional, avoidable risks and excessive downtime, prolonging the overall duration of the survey.
