Bell Geospace and Onyx Engineering are launching data from a multiclient FTG program offshore Malaysia, with support from state oil firm Petronas.  

The multiclient FTG program includes airborne 3D Full Tensor Gradiometry (FTG) and magnetic survey data acquired over the offshore Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak and Sabah. 

Fully processed and interpreted library data is now available, spanning 158,000sq km with additional data being added from February 2017.

John Macfarlane executive vice president of Bell Geospace comments: “The ongoing licencing bid round is an ideal time to introduce this program and is an excellent opportunity to prioritise future acquisition for interested parties.

“Our regional FTG data will play a significant role in the exploration process for companies working or considering working in Malaysia, allowing for the first time ever, a rapid selection of areas of interest for bidding and for planning for subsequent seismic acquisition and interpretation work."

Proprietary infill data will be acquired on a plan designed to resolve geology of less than 1km with the option to specify tighter line spacing to suit each operator’s objectives. A thorough feasibility study will be provided to prospective operators, outlining the precise survey plan required to resolve sub-surface geological issues. 

Case studies of some of the challenges faced in the region illustrating how FTG has helped to overcome these have been written and more examples are being added all the time. These studies will be made available on request.
