Australia: Georgina basin seismic under way

PetroFrontier Corp., Calgary, has begun recording the “Amy” 2D proprietary seismic program consisting of 385 line-km on exploration permits 103, 104, 127, and 128 in the Southern Georgina basin in Australia’s Northern Territory.

The program, contracted to Terrex Seismic of Australia, will fulfill the Northern Territory government work commitments for permit retention, delineate the southern and northwest basin margins, and help outline prospective hydrocarbon target areas.

PetroFrontier and its partners Statoil Australia Theta BV and Baraka Energy & Resources Ltd. will interpret the data gathered to target conventional hydrocarbons in the Cambrian Thorntonia and other formations and unconventional hydrocarbons in the Lower Cambrian Arthur Creek formation.

The most promising areas will be seismically mapped and the data will aid in identifying locations for exploratory wells to be drilled as part of the 2013-14 program in the Southern Georgina basin.
