Spectrum begins new phase of 2D campaign offshore Brazil

Multi-client seismic data specialist Spectrum has begun Phase III of the Santos Campos multi-client 2D seismic campaign offshore Brazil.

Spectrum said on Wednesday that the new acquisition program was a further extension of the company’s 2017 Santos Campos Phase II survey, covering an area in the southern Santos Basin.

The area covered is included in the proposed sectors for the licensing round scheduled for 2019, Round 16. With this additional program, Spectrum will provide over 47,000 2D kilometers of modern long-offset seismic data to industry for evaluation of the highly prolific Santos Campos hydrocarbon province.

The company added that the survey was being acquired with a 12-kilometer-long receiver cable to record data necessary to understand basin architecture as well as to image prospective zones in the pre-salt section.

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 the third quarter 2018.

Richie Miller, EVP of multi-client for the 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.”

Spectrum also said that the survey would be carried out in partnership with BGP Marine.

Offshore Energy Today reported on Tuesday that Spectrum began a new multi-client broadband 3D and 2D reprocessing project in the Otway Basin offshore Australia.
