The geophysical company PGS Australia Pty Ltd (PGS) proposes to acquire a MultiClient three-dimensional (MC3D) and MultiClient two-dimensional (MC2D) marine seismic survey (MSS) in the Great Australian Bight (GAB) known as the Duntroon MC3D and MC2D MSS.
 The survey area is located 51 km from Cape Carnot, Eyre Peninsula (mainland South Australia), 90 km west of Kangaroo Island and approximately 80 km south-south west of Port Lincoln, the nearest township. The survey covers Petroleum Exploration Permits EPP-41, EPP-42,EPP-45 and EPP-46 and a small amount of open acreage area. The water depths of the survey area are in the range 100m to 3500 m with the shallowest water depths located along the northern boundary of the survey area.
Data acquisition will occur in the operational area which covers approximately 30,100, and the surveys will be undertaken from September 1 to  November 30, 2019(season 1); with further provision for September 1 to November 2020 (season 2) in the event that one or both of the surveys are unable to be completed in 2019. The total planned survey timeframe is 91 days within any one season.
