Deep-water (1000 m+) Sabah, Malaysia, is a frontier exploration province proximal to successful exploration trends within the Sabah thrusts zone and Luconia carbonate shelf. The basin is on trend with numerous proven petroleum systems; however, it remains underexplored with minimal drilling activities targeting the deep-water hydrocarbon plays. The need to build reliable regional interpretation over large prospective areas led to a broadband multimeasurement towed-streamer acquisition over 19,500 km2 in offshore Sabah. In this work, we illustrate an integrated workflow that incorporates contemporary broadband processing, interpretation-guided earth model building, and multiphysics input to interpretation to generate a high-resolution seismic image that will accelerate exploration in the region.
