PGS Completes GeoStreamer Acquisition on 17th Round Blocks in Campos Basin

Ramform Titan has surveyed additional open acreage to complete PGS coverage of the emerging plays of the outboard Campos Basin. This survey provides the first 3D seismic for Brazil's 17th Round, scheduled for October 2021. Fast-track anisotropic (TTI) PSDM products for the additional acreage will be available in July.

Ramform Titan began towing the largest spread ever offshore Brazil in June 2020 and returned to Campos in December. The acquisition configuration, with 14 streamers each 10 kilometers long, is tailored to the challenges of the Campos area. The vessel and its exceptional equipment spread maximize subsurface illumination and minimize environmental impact, acquiring the targeted coverage faster.

Acquisition Continues on Campos Deepwater GeoStreamer X

Ramform Titan will continue in the area on the next phase of this exciting Multiclient program, which will deliver multi-azimuth illumination (MAZ) of presalt targets.

This project combines the latest PGS acquisition and imaging innovations with rejuvenated library data in the Campos Basin to deliver improved imaging and understanding in a key exploration hotspot. The data covers acreage for multiple Brazil licensing rounds. When completed, the Campos Deepwater GeoStreamer X survey will cover approximately 17 100 sq. km.

Data Delivery for 17th Round Evaluations

  • Available Now | Fast-track TTI PSDM products from 2020 acquisition area
  • July 2021 | Final TTI PSDM products from 2020 acquisition area
  • July 2021 | Fast-track TTI PSDM products (additional blocks)
  • July 2021| Gravity and magnetic data for regional basin analysis

Final MAZ products over open pre-salt acreage, including TTI Kirchhoff and RTM (45 Hz) PSDM will be ready next month, with final MAZ products over open and held acreage, available in Q2 2022.

Brazil's concession bidding rounds are annual license opportunities for new exploration areas. These occur alongside the presalt and permanent offer rounds. The 17th Concession Bidding Round was rescheduled to October 2021. The 17th Round focuses on the Equatorial Margin, with blocks from the Pará-Maranhão offshore basins, Pelotas, and Potiguar; plus ultra-deep waters outside the presalt Campos and Santos basins.
