This study, known as a SeepHunter campaign, includes the results of 342 conventional cores and 29 jumbo piston cores and heat probes. Additionally, advanced geochemistry has been performed on more than 60 core samples to date.
Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS, said: “... We will continue to prioritize Brazil as it remains a world class petroleum basin with some of the world’s most exciting oil and gas exploration opportunities.”
In 2018, the company expanded its Santos 3D program over the prospective southern Santos basin. Combined with long-offset 2D seismic surveys over most of the Santos and Campos basins, the 3D surveys cover an area south of the major oil and gas discoveries in the basin and the recent blocks offered in Rounds 15 and 16.
