FairfieldNodal BEGINS SHOOTING IN SOUTHERN DELAWARE
The FairfieldNodal and Schlumberger WesternGeco multiclient joint venture project in the southern Delaware Basin of West Texas, known as Coyanosa Phase I, is scheduled to begin shooting late-August.
This initial phase, to be acquired by Dawson Geophysical, will consist of 307 square miles of high-quality, 3D seismic data in Ward, Reeves and Pecos Counties, Texas. Of particular interest are the Bone Spring and Wolfcamp formations.
The resulting 3D data will tie into existing FairfieldNodal and WesternGeco 3D data to provide customers with contiguous data coverage in the southern Delaware Basin. Data will be jointly licensed by FairfieldNodal and WesternGeco. It is anticipated data from Phase 1 will be available Q1 2018.
The Delaware Basin is a geologic depositional and structural basin in West Texas and southern New Mexico, famous for holding large oil fields and for a fossilized reef exposed at the surface. Guadalupe Mountains National Park and Carlsbad Caverns National Park protect part of the basin. It is part of the larger Permian Basin, itself contained within the Mid-Continent oil province.
