Shearwater GeoServices has been awarded a 4D monitoring contract for towed streamer seismic acquisition in the Campos Basin offshore Brazil.
The 3D and 4D programs will be conducted over 9-months by the SW Empress, over the Marlim, Albacora, and Voador fields, starting late in the second quarter of 2021, Shearwater said.
4D time-lapse seismic monitoring is a key reservoir management tool and Shearwater described itself as a “technology and market leader in 4D towed streamer and ocean bottom seismic acquisition”.
“Brazil has one of the most advanced programs of deepwater 4D seismic monitoring for reservoir management. This large 4D towed streamer seismic award by Petrobras adds significant backlog to the substantial programs already awarded to Shearwater in Brazil”, said Irene Waage Basili, CEO of Shearwater GeoServices.
