Geoscience Australia (GA) proposes to undertake a 2D seismic survey using a single vessel off the northern Houtman Sub-basin, part of the Perth Basin off the coast of Western Australia. New data will supplement existing geological knowledge of the region, underpin petroleum prospectively evaluation, and ultimately support the discovery of new oil and gas resources.
The Operational Area defines the geographical boundary of the Activity (Figure 2-1). This area includes a buffer zone of up to 12 km in which the seismic source may be discharged at or below full capacity for the pupose of run outs, source testing, soft-starts and line turns. The coordinates for the Operational Area are provided in Table 2-1.
The Activity is scheduled to commence from approximately the 8th November 2014 and be concluded by 31st January 2015. The survey comprises approximately 48 days of survey activity and 8 days of transit to and from the permit areas during mobilisation (2 days transit), crew change port of call (4 days transit) and demobilisation (2 days transit).
