Carnarvon Petroleum Ltd - Carnarvon Petroleum reveals new seismic data set providing clearer view of Dorado and Roc fields
Carnarvon is analysing the data to determine follow up exploration potential in the area

Carnarvon Petroleum Limited (ASX:CVN) has delivered a high-quality Keraudren 3D seismic data set for the Dorado and Roc fields and the surrounding area off the coast of Western Australia.

A higher-quality data set is due to be received before the end of the 2020 calendar year.

The Keraudren 3D seismic data was acquired in 2019 using ‘source over streamer’ technology.

Clearer view of the Dorado field

The new 3D seismic data has improved the visibility of the key geological intervals associated within the hydrocarbon zones of the Dorado and Roc fields and by extension within these intervals in the surrounding area.

The seismic mapping has confirmed the structural integrity of the Apus prospect (previously mapped on the Bilby 2D data) and the Pavo prospect.

Carnarvon also applied semi-automated seismic interpretation software to the new Keraudren 3D data.

The results provide a clearer view of the Dorado field, the surrounding prospects and the basinal architecture covered by the new data.

This is illustrated in Figure 1 and supporting Table 1 in a seismic line between the Dorado field and the Apus prospect.

Carnarvon managing director and chief executive officer Adrian Cook said: “We clearly know that we are working in a prolific new hydrocarbon basin on the North West Shelf, most particularly following the successful Dorado and Roc discoveries and appraisal results.

“We are currently working with the new Keraudren 3D seismic data to determine follow up exploration potential in the area and to support the Dorado field development work.

“Whilst still very early in the mapping process, exploration wise, we are very encouraged by the observations from our team’s work to date.”
