SEARCHER is back to do 3D seismic surveys, register and be heard.

Searcher Geodata UK Ltd (yes – the same one the court chased away earlier this year) has appointed EIMS to assist with the required authorisation processes (including the public participation) in the application for an Environmental Authorisation (EA).


Searcher proposes to undertake a 3D seismic survey off the West Coast of South Africa. The proposed project area is located between approximately 256 km offshore of St Helena Bay, extending north along the western coastline to approximately 220 km offshore of Hondeklip Bay. The survey area at the closest point is approximately 218 km offshore of the coast of the Western and Northern Cape.
