Fugro has started hydrocarbon seeps survey for TGS offshore Brazil.
Two purpose-built vessels, Fugro Brasilis and Fugro Searcher, have been deployed to acquire high-resolution multibeam echosounder and sub-bottom profiler data in the Campos and Santos Basins.
The survey is designed to mirror TGS’s 2016-2017 Gigante and Otos projects in the Gulf of Mexico in which Fugro provided similar services.
Covering an area of approximately 200,000 square kilometers, Fugro will use these data to identify and recommend the most prospective locations to target for geochemical sampling, the company noted.
Project deliverables will be used by energy companies to help optimize and refine their exploration and development activities in this region.
