Polarcus has kicked off production in the first of a series of three 3D seismic projects offshore Brazil.
The project is being acquired using the Polarcus A-Class 3D seismic vessel, Polarcus Alima.
The first project is being acquired for Chariot Brasil Petróleo e Gás Ltda and the duration of the combined campaign is seven months.
According to Chariot, the survey covers approximately 785 km2 of its 100% operated BAR-M-292, BAR-M-293, BAR-M-313 and BAR-M-314 licences in the Barreirinhas basin.
Richard Price, Polarcus senior vice president, North & South America, said: “We are delighted that our geophysical service offering and our environmental agenda have created the opportunity for delivering these projects for key clients in Brazil. The seven-month Brazilian campaign is an important element of our global strategy to maximize utilization of the Polarcus fleet through extending regional campaigns and minimizing vessel transits.”
