PGS licenses campaigns in the Santos and Campos Basins

May 10, 2018

PGS Offshore is licensing two campaigns to acquire non-exclusive seismic data in the Campos and Santos Basins. The campaigns cover the areas auctioned in round 14 and round 15 of the ANP, held in September last year and in March this year. In the two auctions 21 blocks were bought in the two basins, 12 in the 14th round and 9 in the 15th round.

The acquisition of data in licensing also covers part of the Alto de Cabo Frio Central area, acquired by the consortium Petrobras and BP in the 3rd pre-salt auction held last year. It also includes the Dois Irmãos area, which will be auctioned at the 4th pre-salt auction, to be held on June 7.

The first campaign, called the Santos Cabo Frio Program, will raise data in a polygon of 44,293.00 km2 at a minimum distance of 126 km from the coast of the State of Rio de Janeiro, in waters with depths greater than 1500 meters. The activity will last approximately 500 days, scheduled to begin in March 2019.

The second campaign, called the Campos Águas Profundas Program, will collect data in a polygon with 23,290.00 km2 of area at 102 km minimum distance from the coast of the State of Rio de Janeiro, in waters with depths greater than 500 meters. The activity will last approximately 150 days, scheduled to begin in February 2019.

The two campaigns will use for logistics the ports of Vitória (ES) and / or Rio de Janeiro.
