PGS' seismic vessel Ramform Titan is about to continue acquisition of the Campos Deepwater GeoStreamer X, a pre-funded MultiClient 3D seismic survey with multi-azimuth coverage.

PGS resuming Campos Basin seismic survey in December

In December 2020, PGS will resume operations, to acquire an additional 8400 km2.

Ramform Titan will again be configured with 14 multisensor streamers, each 10.05 km long, the largest spread ever towed offshore Brazil. This configuration minimises the number of source points per square kilometre and reduces the number of acquisition days. Both these measures reduce environmental impact.

The survey will provide the first 3D seismic data over blocks offered in the upcoming 17th Bidding Round, now scheduled for October 2021.

Martin Melhuus, PGS Vice President Sales & Services for South America, commented, “We are very pleased for Ramform Titan to be back in Campos Basin. Despite the challenges of this year, the support of industry funding for this programme shows there is strong interest in the potential within the Campos Basin. This is a strategic project in a core area where PGS fully utilises its latest acquisition innovations in providing a step-change in data quality for the evaluation of the upcoming 17th Bidding Round acreage and greater Campos presalt play. Available fast-track results show great promise and reveal large presalt structures within the available acreage."
