The geophysical company Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) proposes to acquire a multi-client three-dimensional (MC3D) marine seismic survey (MSS) within the North-west Marine Region (NWMR) offshore from Western Australia.
The Titan MC3D MSS operational area lies entirely in Commonwealth waters within the NWMR, and is located at the closest point ∼125 km to Port Hedland on the mainland coast of Western Australia. The northeast corner of the operational area is located ∼40 km from the Rowley Shoal State Marine Park and ∼130 km from Mermaid Reef. The southern boundary is located ∼117 km north of Eighty Mile Beach and the western boundary is located ∼175 km to the east of Legendre Island (Dampier Archipelago; see Figure 1.1). Water depths within the Titan MC3D MSS operational area range from ∼60 m to ∼3,400 m, while water depths in the smaller acquisition area only range from ~80 m to ~3,300 m. The deepest water depths are located on the northwest corner of the operational area.
The Titan MC3D MSS EP has the objective of covering a MC3D survey over specific petroleum titles and adjacent vacant acreage over a period of approximately 24 months. PGS plans to commence the Titan MC3D MSS no earlier than 1 December 2014, but it may be conducted in phases and with more than one vessel, depending on weather and vessel availability for conducting the survey and client data requirements.
