Offshore geophysical company Polarcus has announced the start of production in the first of a series of three 3D seismic projects offshore Brazil.
The seismic company said that the project is being acquired using the Polarcus A-Class 3D seismic vessel, Polarcus Alima.
The first project is being acquired for Chariot Oil & Gas, and the duration of the combined campaign is seven months, Polarcus stated.
The survey for Chariot covers the company’s 100% operated BAR-M-292, BAR-M-293, BAR-M-313 and BAR-M-314 licences in the Barreirinhas basin, offshore Brazil.
According to Chariot, the survey is anticipated to take approximately 30 days to complete.
Commenting on this, Richard Price, Senior Vice President, North & South America, stated: “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”.
