Malaysia: Petronas sets vast seismic off Sabah, Sarawak

Malaysia’s Petronas has let a contract to CGG to shoot and process 10,000 sq km of 3D broadband seismic offshore Sabah and Sarawak in Malaysia.

Acquisition began in August and is due to continue for 5 months. Two vessels are being deployed to ensure the program is completed before the onset of monsoon season.

CGG didn’t specify blocks or areas to be surveyed but said they include a shallow water area. It said the geology ranges from carbonate layers to complex channels and shallow gas anomalies.
