Spectrum to commence new Multi-Client 2D survey offshore Brazil

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Spectrum is pleased to announce the commencement of a 15,000 km Multi-Client 2D survey offshore Brazil in the Santos and Campos Basins.

The new acquisition program is an outboard extension of Spectrum's 2012 Santos Campos Phase 1 survey, and will tie other programs in the Santos, Campos and Espirito Santo Basins producing a continuous dataset covering the prolific pre-salt oil fields in these basins.

The survey is being acquired with a 12,000 m cable to record data necessary to understand basin architecture as well as to image prospective zones in the pre-salt section. The data will be processed in Spectrum's Houston processing center with PSTM, PSDM (Kirchhoff and RTM) and Broadband products expected to be available in Q2 2017.

Richie Miller, EVP Multi-Client North & South America, comments: 'Spectrum has started on our next campaign in Brazil in order to provide new long-offset data over prospective pre-salt basins for an anticipated round in 2017. In light of the Brazilian government's suggestion that it will include blocks outside the pre-salt area in the Santos and Campos Basins, this play continues to provide excitement and opportunities for exploration. This new data will extend coverage over a very lightly explored area of the pre-salt exploration province.'

The survey is acquired in partnership with BGP and is supported with industry funding.
