EMGS, Spectrum join in geophysical coverage of Foz do Amazonas basin offshore Brazil

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) and Spectrum ASA (Spectrum) have agreed to cooperate on offering geophysical coverage of Brazil’s Foz do Amazonas basin.

Spectrum has over 21,000 km (13,049 mi) of multi-client 2D seismic data for this area of the equatorial margin. EMGS has access to this data for planning and improved imaging purposes and plans acquisition of 3D resistivity data in a regional, multi-client program covering approximately 8,000 sq km (3,089 sq mi).

BOA Galatea will start 3D EM data acquisition close to the border of French Guiana’s territorial waters and work its way southeast. Survey completion is expected in August 2013.

The deliverables include seismic-constrained 3D EM inversion cubes, interpreted lead maps, and probabilistic resource estimates.
