WOKING, UK – The BGP Challenger has started a 6,000-km (3,728-mi) multi-client 2D seismic survey over the Ceara basin offshore northern Brazil, including areas covered under the country’s 15th licensing round.

According to BGP Marine’s partnerSpectrum Geo, the vessel is deploying a 12,000-m (39,370-ft) streamer with continuous recording to facilitate extended recording lengths and high fold data, allowing full interpretation from Moho to water bottom.

Data will be processed with PSTM, PSDM, and Broadband products, with first deliveries expected during 1Q 2018. The 15th round is due to close during 2Q.

Richie Miller, Spectrum’s EVP Multi-Client Americas, said: “When the survey is completed it will provide a continuous modern long-offset, 10-km (6.2-mi) grid from the border with French Guiana to the eastern extent of the Potiguar basin.”
