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 companies said in a statement on Tuesday.

 

The two seismic firms are working as equal partners on the project which has received high pre-funding from a number of major industry players.

 

The survey is expected to start in January 2014 and will be acquired by the Oceanic Endeavour vessel deploying CGG subsidiary Sercel’s next-generation Sentinel RD solid streamer technology.

 

The high-end BroadSeis data set will be processed at CGG’s Rio de Janeiro subsurface imaging center.

 

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO of CGG, said the programme is being launched in response to the recent high-level industry interest in the Brazilian equatorial region.
