Shell seismic survey, Qatar

Shell seismic survey, Qatar

In 2010, Qatar Shell Upstream International B.V. (QSUI) re-entered Exploration in Qatar focusing on the relatively deep conventional Pre-Khuff gas plays with a view to discover additional hydrocarbons in the State of Qatar. In order to support Qatar Shell with the execution of offshore seismic programs, EOMAP’s Satellite Derived Bathymetry service was used and validated extensively.
For this location and coverage, we estimated to have made a cost saving of approximately one million dollar compared to a traditional executed bathymetry and/or topographic LiDAR survey. The speed in which the final products were delivered greatly added to the usefulness and importance of the data in the tendering and planning phase of the seismic campaigns.” Joris Siermann et al. 2014.
