Spectrum starts 2D survey offshore BrazilProjects and Operations // July 25, 2016
Spectrum has started a 15,000km multiclient 2D survey offshore Brazil in the Santos and Campos basins.
The new acquisition programme is an outboard extension of Spectrum's 2012 Santos Campos Phase 1 survey, and will tie other programs in the Santos, Campos and Espirito Santo Basins producing a continuous dataset covering the prolific pre-salt oil fields in these basins.
Data is being acquired with a 12,000m cable to record data necessary to understand the basin architecture as well as image the prospective zones in the pre-salt section. The data will be processed in Spectrum's processing centre in Houston with PSTM, PSDM and Broadband products expected to be available in the second quarter of 2017.
The survey is acquired in partnership with BGP and is supported with industry funding.
