Seismic survey company ION Geophysical has decided to conduct a 3D multi-client reimaging program offshore Mexico.

ION said on Thursday that the reimaging program would be the seventh one conducted by the company offshore Mexico.

“Based on the success of both the Campeche and Mexican Ridges 3D reimaging programs, now totaling over 130,000 sq km, ION is extending its data in a lesser explored area further to the north,” the company said.

According to the company, its new Perdido South 3D reimaging program consists of over 16,000 square kilometers across six surveys in the southern part of the attractive Perdido area, believed to have prolific hydrocarbon potential.

ION added that the company’s experience offshore Mexico, adjacent to the program area, would aid in the design of cutting-edge processing workflows and deliverables to optimize image quality and inform exploration programs.

Brian Hanson, ION’s president and CEO, said: “We are pleased to be collaborating on another large project offshore Mexico, where we anticipate strong client demand in upcoming license rounds. Our approach to reimage the raw data using the most advanced imaging technology into a seamless dataset will jumpstart exploration efforts in this largely untested basin.”

The data will be delivered in phases over the next ten months, with initial deliverables available in May, to accelerate subsurface knowledge and inform upcoming bid round decisions. Fast track products are planned to be delivered in the third and fourth quarters of 2018.
