Data Package


Data Package

The data package prepared for OBR3 contains regional 2D seismic lines, 3D seismic volumes covering the bid area, well data, bathymetric, previous operators report and selected regional studies of the basin's evolution and petroleum systems. For ease of use all the seismic, well and culture data were loaded into a Petrel 2019 E&P Platform Project. For more detailed information on the content of the package see below.


A summary of the items included within the data package is shown below, the full list of the data items can be downloaded from the following link.

The well package comprises information and data from 3 wells that were drilled in the northern part of the Israeli EEZ between 2011 and 2012 (see list of wells and location map below).  The package includes well log data in LAS format, composite logs, End of Well reports and additional technical reports and information.



Seismic Data


2D Data Set -

The 2D seismic data comprises of regional 2D seismic reflection lines (in SEGY format) that were acquired by Horizon in 1983, SPECTRUM in 2000, TGS-NOPEC in 2001 and Noble Energy in 2008 include lines that extend into the offered area (See map). These surveys are processed in time domain. X/Y coordinates are edited within the trace headers and the lines are ready to be loaded into any standard interpretation station.

In addition, scanned images  in jpeg format of lines from the 1979 ODYSEE 2D seismic reflection survey  that extend into the license area (See map) are included .

Field tapes and stacked data may be purchased separately.


3D Data Set -



The 3D seismic reflection data comprises a section of a survey acquired by previous license operators in 2010 that covers the central part of the offered area (See map). The package includes time, depth and velocity migrated volumes (in SEGY format) that can be loaded into any standard interpretation station.

Additional raw data, pre-stack gathers, velocity data and stacked offset data can be purchased separately.
