2019 Offshore acreage bidding round

The 2019 offshore acreage release bidding round closed in early March 2020.  Discover Geoscience undertook several gazettal block studies for various clients over the course of the bidding round.  The studies were tailored to the specific needs of each client and varied from basin wide to targeted block studies.  Concept and lead inventories were compiled, along with play fairway maps, palaeogeographic maps, seismic facies analysis, interpretation of key horizons, volumetrics, quantitative interpretation studies, well post-mortem analysis, and well log conditioning.  Some example results are shown below.


Discover Geoscience looks forward to the next bidding round and to helping our clients once again with their bids.  Contact us for further information on how we can help you with your current workload, upcoming bidding rounds and gazettals, exclusive evaluations and studies and data management needs.

AVO attribute analysis forms a key part of gazettal block evaluations. Shown here is an example AVA anomaly in Carboniferous sediments potentially sealed by the Locker Shale.

Concept and lead inventories were compiled across gazettal blocks. The example shown here shows high amplitudes in the Caley which dim up dip, likely by a shale filled canyon.

Concept and lead inventories were compiled across gazettal blocks. In this example, a Legendre level four-way dip closure was investigated with a potential stacked pay with a smaller fault bounded closure at JP1 level.

Offshore peru well atlas

Offshore Peru has a proven prolific oil play and prospectivity within multiple basins containing both thick reservoir seal pairs and a rich array of structural traps, yet remains dramatically under-explored. Hydrocarbon fields both on and offshore along the north coast in the Tumbes-Progreso and Talara extensional basins currently contribute over 1.8 billion barrels of domestic oil production.  To the south of these producing fields lie 5 additional offshore basins where little exploration activity has been undertaken to date.


Discover Geoscience is pleased to offer for purchase a multi-client Conditioned Well Atlas of offshore Peru, in partnership with Searcher and with the support of Peru Petro.

The Atlas includes a review of forty strategic petroleum and exploration wells across offshore Peru, from the Tumbes-Progreso, Talara, Sechura, Trujillo and Salaverry basins.  For each well, the following deliverables will be available:

» Enhanced well completion reports with translations of key sections from Spanish to English

» Conditioned well logs (merged, spliced and de-spiked) in a single .las format file

» Basic well data summary sheets

» Well post mortem review

» Interpreted sections through wells

To discover more about this or other products, contact us today.

A conditioned set of well logs has been generated for each selected well. Well logs have been digitised, analysed, quality controlled and standardised with output on a templates as shown above.
An example output from the well post mortem review. Each well is reviewed to determine the well objectives, the presence of each of the key petroleum systems elements, and an interpretation of the likely reason for failure.
An example Basic Well Data summary sheet. For each well, position and depth information has been examined and verified, and key basic data is summarised.

Seismic sections through each well have been examined and interpreted with key horizons picked in order to support the reason for failure analysis.

Gulf of papua prospectivity study

Discover Geoscience is pleased to offer for purchase a multi-client Gulf of Papua Prospectivity Study, offshore Papua New Guinea.

The Gulf of Papua Prospectivity Study was undertaken by Discover Geoscience on behalf of Searcher and consists of five main sections; Tectono-Stratigraphic Framework, TWT and Depth Mapping, Facies and EOD Mapping, Charge Modelling plus Play Concepts & Leads Inventory.


The Study is being offered to industry as an integrated multi-disciplinary report of the hydrocarbon prospectivity potential across the entire region utilising the wealth of data from Searcher’s Gulf of Papua datasets, and is available for purchase by those companies who have licensed a substantial amount of the Haere and Hahonua seismic datasets.

The Gulf of Papua is a vast area comprising over 187,000 km2. With only 27 wildcat exploration wells drilled to date in shallow water, much of the region remains under explored. The Gulf of Papua Prospectivity Study incorporates the entire geographical region from the Fly River delta to the Coral Sea, and aims to help companies fast-track their exploration efforts and focus in on the areas of interest that meet their individual exploration goals.

The deliverables of the Gulf of Papua Propsectivity Study include the following;

» Formation tops for 16 representative wells

» Chronostratigraphy

» TWT and depth maps of 5 key horizons

» Isochron maps

» Environment of deposition maps at 5 key ages

» Geoseismic sections

» Regional tectono- structural elements map

» 3D mapping

» 1D basin modelling

» 2D and 3D lead portfolio

To discover more about this or other products, contact us today.

The Gulf of Papua Prospectivity Study incorporated the entire offshore area from the Fly River region out to the Coral Sea.

Five key horizons plus seafloor have been interpreted across a regional dataset in the Gulf of Papua. Horizons are provided in TWT and Depth.

Detailed mapping across the area has led to the development of a Major Tectono-stratigraphic Elements Map, detailing the structural style and dominant stratigraphy across the Offshore Gulf of Papua region.

A set of Geoseismic sections have been developed to demonstrate the key tectonostratigraphic elements of the regions in cross section format.
