Fugro deploys two vessels on seep hunting survey off Brazil

Dutch geoscience company Fugro has deployed two vessels offshore Brazil on a seep hunting survey. 

Working for multi-client geoscience data company, TGS, Fugro continues the hunt for hydrocarbon seeps with two purpose-built vessels, Fugro Brasilis and Fugro Searcher.

The vessels have been deployed to acquire high-resolution multibeam echosounder and sub-bottom profiler data in the Campos and Santos Basins, Fugro said on Friday.

The survey is designed to mirror TGS’s 2016-2017 Gigante and Otos projects in the Gulf of Mexico in which Fugro provided similar services. Covering an area of approximately 200,000 square kilometers, Fugro will use these data to identify and recommend the most prospective locations to target for geochemical sampling.

Fugro said that project deliverables will be used by energy companies to help optimize and refine their exploration and development activities in this prolific region.

“Integrating our high-resolution modern multibeam systems with our expert interpreters enhances the services we provide for our clients,” explains Jim Gharib, Fugro’s Global Product Manager for Seep Hunting and Geochemical Campaigns.
