Spectrum has started Phase III of the Brazilian Santos Campos multi-client 2D acquisition program.
The survey is an extension of Spectrum’s 2017 Santos Campos Phase II survey, covering an area in the southern Santos Basin.
With this additional program, Spectrum will provide over 47,000 kilometers of 2D modern long offset seismic data to industry, the company said.
The data will be processed in Spectrum’s Houston processing center with PSTM, PSDM (Kirchhoff and RTM) and Broadband products expected to be available in Q3 2018.
Richie Miller, EVP Multi-Client Americas, said, “The Santos Basin of Brazil is one of the most attractive basins in the world. Adding new data with advanced imaging over an area in the Santos Basin with limited exploration history or data allows for industry to work this data and understand the complete Santos Basin for the first time. Phase III will cover additional rift basins identified by our existing regional Deep Focus survey, and complete the coverage of the sectors proposed for Round 16.”
The survey will be carried out in partnership with BGP Marine.
