Location map - Activity: Dunnart 2D Marine Seismic Survey (refer to description)

The scope of the EP covers 2D seismic data acquisition activities within the Dunnart 2D MSS operational area, which include a series of survey lines, vessel turns at the end of each survey line, streamer deployment, maintenance and recovery and vessel manoeuvring. The EP does not cover transit of the survey vessel to and from the operational area, or from port to the operational area.
The Dunnart 2D MSS will take place across 11 permit areas within Commonwealth Waters in the Carnarvon Basin and Dampier Sub-Basin. The operational area is situated in the North West Marine Region (NWMR) which covers an area of tropical and sub-tropical waters from shallow continental shelf area (<200m deep) to deep abyssal plains in excess of 5,000m water depth.
The Dunnart 2D MSS is scheduled to occur over five days between late April and the end of May 2015. The survey has been scheduled to minimise potential conflict with other users and sensitive marine fauna without compromising survey objectives. Should the timing of the survey be significantly altered by survey vessel availability, operational constraints, stakeholder inputs or prevailing weather conditions, then Searcher will provide stakeholders with additional information detailing the revised schedule.
