ION Reimaging 3D Data Off Brazil

ION Geophysical has announced a new 3D multi-client broadband reimaging program offshore Brazil.

Supported by industry funding, the Picanha program provides a regional 3D framework that delivers fresh insights into the Campos and Santos basins’ petroleum systems ahead of upcoming license rounds.

ION will use its broadband processing and imaging technology to reprocess and reimage 100,000 sq km of data from more than 50 interconnecting public-domain 3D surveys. The program will be delivered in phases to provide relevant bid round knowledge. The first 12,500 sq km over Round 14 have been delivered and the next 25,000 sq km are in progress for December delivery.

“Repeated oil and gas discoveries in the world-class petroleum systems offshore Brazil continues to draw operators to the region,” said Ken Williamson, executive vice president and chief operating officer of ION’s E&P Technology and Services group. “Picanha leverages ION’s extensive local geological and geophysical experience in combination with our new Accelerated Imaging, making it possible to rapidly deliver high quality data for E&P companies to evaluate the context of these complex basins and to identify prospect opportunities for upcoming ANP license rounds.”
