Phase 5 will add another 6,850 sq km (2,645 sq mi)ofdata to the existing 25,000 sq km (9,653 sq mi) already acquired since Centauro began in Oct 2010, bringing the total volume to almost 32,000 sq km (12,355 sq mi).
CGG’s two 20-streamer vessels, theOceanic Vega and the Oceanic Sirius,will acquire the survey data. The project is expected to begin in mid-November and be completed in March 2014.
