Spectrum Wraps Up Another 2D Seismic Campaign Off Brazil

 Spectrum has announced the completion of the 17,700 km Santos Campos Phase 2 2D seismic survey offshore Brazil.

The new acquisition program is an outboard extension of Spectrum’s 2012 Santos Campos Phase 1 survey, and ties 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 has been 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 is already being processed in Spectrum’s Houston processing center with PSTM, PSDM (Kirchhoff and RTM) and Broadband products expected to be available in Q2 2017.

The completion of this new campaign offshore Brazil provides new long-offset data over prospective pre-salt basins in time for an anticipated round in 2017. The Brazilian government has suggested that the round will include blocks outside the pre-salt area in the Santos and Campos Basins, this play continues to provide excitement and opportunities for exploration. The new data extends coverage over a under-explored area of the pre-salt exploration province.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
