Australian duo Santos and Carnarvon Petroleum has received initial data from a 3D seismic survey carried out over their acreage in the Bedout sub-basin, off Western Australia.

Carnarvon revealed Wednesday the Keraudren 3D seismic survey had delivered “a very high quality data set” over the Santos-operated Dorado and Roc fields, as well as the surrounding area.

It claimed the initial fast track data set had improved the visibility of the key geological intervals associated within the hydrocarbon zones at the fields and, as well as within those same intervals in the surrounding area.
