Spectrum has completed the reprocessing of approximately 9,000kms of regional 2D seismic data from the Italian sector of the Adriatic Sea on a Multi Client basis. The original surveys were acquired by the Italian government as part of a study to highlight the hydrocarbon potential of the Adriatic Sea.
The majority of production in the region is from Pliocene age gas fields, many of which have multi TCF reserves. However, the deeper potential of the Adriatic has yet to be fully explored and this reprocessed data library which shows many un-drilled structures and should lead to a greater understanding of the hydrocarbon potential within the Adriatic Sea.
The reprocessing was carried out in Spectrum’s state of the art processing centre. The data is now available and it has already triggered significant industry interest through the direct hydrocarbon indicators highlighted.
