CGG has received all necessary permits to start acquiring broadband seismic survey of the Barreirinhas Basin in the Equatorial Margin of northern Brazil in early November.

The 14,500 km2 MegaBar survey is being acquired by the Oceanic Vega deploying Sercel Sentinel solid streamers.

The BroadSeis dataset will be processed in CGG’s Rio de Janeiro Subsurface Imaging center. Fast-track processing deliverables will be available in several phases, starting in May 2016, CGG said in a press release.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: “CGG has responded to significant client interest in the potential of the Barreirinhas Basin with an ambitious program for a new benchmark broadband regional survey. BroadSeis has provided significant insight to explorers in the Atlantic and Equatorial margins of Brazil, and is the natural choice for our MegaBar survey. With over 50 years of operating history in Brazil, CGG is as dedicated as ever to supporting Brazil’s exploration, development and production challenges and believes that this new regional seismic data set will offer an excellent opportunity to understand the geological potential of this new frontier.”
