Spectrum has started 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.

Data is being acquired with a 12,000 meter cable to record data necessary to understand the basin architecture as well as image the prospective zones in the pre-salt section.

The data will be processed in Spectrum’s processing center in Houston with PSTM, PSDM and Broadband products expected to be available in Q2 2017, the company informed.

Richie Miller, EVP multi-client North & South America, said: “Spectrum has started on our next campaign in Brazil in order to provide new long-offset data over the 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.
