Final PGS Campos 3D Data Shows Promising Potential for Brazil Round 17 Blocks

Deepwater blocks offered in Brazil's Round 17 are covered by our latest 3D GeoStreamer data, with final data for approximately 4 725 sq. km and 8 250 sq. km fast track TTI PSDM products (KPSDM, RTM). The bid round is scheduled for 7 October 2021. 

  • New - Full Integrity PSDM products are now available over Round 17 blocks C-M-279, 348, 415, 483, plus partial coverage of 212 and 549
  • New - Fast Track PSDM data available over block C-M-481
  • Previously announced  - Fast Track data for blocks C-M-350, 417, 485

Together, these full integrity and fast track products from PGS’s Campos Deepwater GeoStreamer X MultiClient 3D program provide the only 3D data in this area for Round 17 acreage evaluations.

TTI PSDM Illumination

“The outer Campos Basin remains an under-explored region, historically due to attention given to the significant presalt discoveries in the adjoining Santos Basin.  Attention has returned to Campos Basin, with Final Investment Decision announcements on BM-C-33 presalt (analog) discoveries, numerous Campos Basin drilling permits, and encouraging new field wildcat drilling results, including including the recently announced hydrocarbon shows reported in the Urissane and Mairarê wells," says John Cramer, PGS Brazil Area Manager.

Despite the global pandemic, PGS has now acquired over 15 600 sq. km of new GeoStreamer long offset (10 km) seismic and marine potential field data, reprocessed the orthogonal legacy seismic to perform multi-azimuth processing to enable optimal imaging of the presalt, and have also produced 3D Fast Track TTI PSDM products covering the outer Campos Basin Round 17 blocks. 

"These new 3D Fast Track TTI PSDM products are now illuminating the numerous under-explored plays in this region, which could not be achieved with the limitations of legacy 2D seismic.  In addition to the traditional presalt plays targeting fractured carbonate reservoirs (buildups, microbalite platforms) and coquina deposits in a lacustrine setting, we are also observing potential subsalt plays with potential A-C-T sediments underlying allochthonous layered evaporite (salt) in the outer Campos Basin. The available 3D Fast Tracks and gravity/magnetics data, as well as ongoing multi-azimuth Full Integrity products, will provide reliable seismic imaging for exploration risk mitigation and potential drilling hazard assessment in this emerging deepwater exploration arena,” says John Cramer.

Available Data for 17th Round Evaluations
  • Full Integrity TTI PSDM products (C-M-212, 279, 348, 415, 483, 549)
  • Fast Track TTI PSDM products (C-M-350, 417, 481, 485)
  • Combined 2D/3D Gravity and Magnetic data for regional basin analysis
