CGG and Spectrum are jointly launching a large, high-end BroadSeisTM 3D multi-client survey program offshore Brazil that will focus on a large proportion of open acreage in the very promising Foz do Amazonas Basin. The two companies are working as equal partners on this project which has received high prefunding from a number of major industry players.
Covering 11,330 km² the Foz do Amazonas survey will be acquired by the Oceanic Endeavour deploying Sercel’s next-generation Sentinel® RD solid streamer and is expected to start in January 2014. The high-end BroadSeis data set will be processed in CGG’s Rio de Janeiro subsurface imaging center.
Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: “We are launching this joint program with Spectrum as a response to the recent high level of industry interest in the Brazilian equatorial margin. We believe it will capitalize on CGG’s high-end BroadSeis technology and Spectrum’s recent 2D program experience in the Foz do Amazonas Basin to bring unique insight to this high-potential area.”
