The Bade survey is over 28,000km2 of FALCON® Airborne Gravity Gradiometer (AGG) multi-client data, within the Papuan Foreland Basin in East Indonesia. Bade covers onshore PSC, JSA and open acreage, in a highly under-explored region of West Papua, along trend from multi-TCF gas fields and recent oil discoveries in Papua New Guinea (PNG).



The island of New Guinea, the second largest island in the world, lies across the northern margin of Australia and records a complex structural and tectonic evolution. The Papuan Foreland Basin hosts up to 16 kilometres of Paleozoic to Cenozoic sedimentary infill and is part of the Northern Australia-Eastern Indonesia-PNG Super Gas Province. The Cross-Catalina and Kau oil fields confirm the existence of a working petroleum system in the foreland and demonstrate the potential for additional discoveries.


The Bade survey benefits from an integrated interpretation performed by CGG’s Multi-Physics group. The main aim of this interpretation is to improve understanding of this structurally complex area by identifying prospective structures in the Mesozoic syn-rift sequence.

FALCON® Technology

The Bade data was acquired using the FALCON® Airborne Gravity Gradiometer system.


FALCON benefits:

  • FALCON airborne gravity gradiometry provides the highest sensitivity to gravity, the best spatial resolution and the best rejection of the aircraft motion effects
  • Maps geological targets, structural, basement, carbonate platforms, fold/thrust belt terrains, intrusives and volcanics 
  • Falcon provides the greatest bandwidth and lowest noise
  • Unique ability to create a measured error map
  • Conforming technology provides all long wavelengths of an anomaly
