CGG said this survey in Brazil's Santos Basin will be the largest node survey ever acquired and processed in the industry.

Marine seismic isn’t the only realm where new technologies are making their mark.

CGG said it has delivered the final data from its 38,000-sq-km Encontrado multiclient reprocessing project across the Gulf of Mexico’s (GoM) Perdido Fold Belt area to Mexico’s Comision Nacional de Hidrocarburos (CNH) and the industry.

Well-planned seismic acquisition overcomes terrain challenges.

Long Range 3-D will comprise about 9,100 sq km of 3-D GeoStreamer data in the Eastern Newfoundland region, a news release said.

Following completion of these surveys, the jointly-owned library will have more than 175,000 line kilometers of 2-D GeoStreamer data and 19,400 sq km of 3-D GeoStreamer data.

The move follows Secretarial Order 3350, which implements President Trump’s America-First Offshore Energy Strategy, and reverses a decision by the previous administration that ordered BOEM to deny the permit applications.

The data license covers deep and shallow-water areas in the basin near prolific geological trends, including the Cantarell and Ku-Maloob-Zaap reservoirs, the release said.

The technique involves matching seismic simulations with existing seismic data to produce subsurface images that are of better quality, BP says.

 Sound Energy’s CEO James Parsons said the extension of the field management agreement will allow cash flow to be spent on the region’s exploration.

More than 2 million sq km (772,204 sq miles) of new 2-D and 3-D seismic are expected to lure companies to Mexico’s E&P sector.

The seismic data obtained are required for updating of the field’s geological model for the discovered formations and prospective horizons, according to the release.
