Dolphin Geophysical, a global supplier of marine geophysical services, on Tuesday announced that it has received a five months 3D seismic contract to survey an offshore location in north-west India. Dolphin will deploy its 3D seismic vessels to start the survey for the undisclosed Indian company in December.


Additionally, Dolphin will also partner with TGS, a geoscience data provider, to acquire a new 3D multi-client survey, Olho de Boi, covering 5,000 sq km offshore Brazil. The survey is designed to image pre-salt plays in the hydrocarbon rich Campos Basin and is located northeast of the Pão de Açúcar discovery in an area of similar structural and stratigraphic characteristics.


Rod Starr, Senior VP Western Hemisphere at TGS, said: “The Olho de Boi survey will be TGS’ first 3D survey in Brazil. The Company has conducted considerable geologic review and reprocessing of existing 2D data to ensure strategic placement of the survey in a highly prospective area in the Campos Basin.  We expect this 3D survey will be of high interest to the industry for future lease round activities.”


The geoscience data provider will use its proprietary broadband processing technology, Clari-Fi, for data processing.
