CGG in New Santos Basin 3D Shoot

CGG has started acquisition of a large broadband 3D multi-client survey in the pre-salt area of the deepwater Santos Basin.

Santos VIII is the most recent survey in CGG’s on-going pre-salt program that delivers seismic data, and according to the company, enabling exploration companies to better evaluate pre-salt opportunities in advance of Brazil’s pre-salt licensing rounds.

Santos VIII covers an area of over 8,000 km² adjacent to the Peroba, Pau Brasil and Boumerangue fields. The resulting BroadSeis data will be imaged with CGG’s full-waveform inversion (FWI) technology in its Rio de Janeiro Subsurface Imaging Center and merged with the Constellation reprocessing project to provide a regional broadband image of this prolific basin.

Fast-track products will be available in the fourth quarter of 2018 and final products will be available in the second quarter of 2019.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: “The addition of Santos VIII will extend our world-class broadband data coverage in the highly prospective deepwater Santos Basin. It is the latest installment of our contiguous volume of over 94,000 km² of seismic data and integrated geologic studies that bridge the Santos and Campos Basins to cover the entire pre-salt area. These multi-client data sets are an essential resource for oil and gas companies to complete a detailed picture of the complex Santos Basin in advance of Brazil’s future licensing rounds.”
