TGS to undertake multibeam survey offshore Brazil

Norwegian geophysical player TGS will undertake a multibeam and seep project in the Campos and Santos Basins, offshore Brazil.

TGS said on Tuesday that the Brazil Southern Basins SeaSeep project would cover the company’s existing surveys in these hydrocarbon-rich basins as well as the highly prospective pre-salt trend where many untested structures exist.

According to the company, acquisition of the multibeam will begin in the late first quarter 2018 with the coring and geochemistry stage to follow. Data will be available in the fourth quarter 2018 over the Round 16 licensing areas scheduled in 2019. Final results in all areas will be available in late 2019.

TGS added that the survey was designed to mirror the successful Gigante and Otos multibeam and seep study projects in the Gulf of Mexico, conducted in 2016 and 2017.

The multibeam program will cover approximately 200,000 square kilometers and will be used to identify 330 core target locations.

Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS, said: “The Brazil Southern Basins SeaSeep Project will provide further insight into the Southern Basins of Brazil and contribute to the knowledge and understanding of these highly prospective areas. I am very pleased to see TGS returning to Brazil to acquire new data after a four-year absence.  This new project is a complementary addition to our extensive historical data library in this region.”
