Shell began licensing a campaign to acquire seismic data in the exploratory blocks area BM-S-54, which is the discovery of Gato do Mato, and the South of Gato do Mato, an area sold to the Shell consortium and Total in the 2nd pre-salt auction held in October last year.
The oil company intends to start the acquisition in July 2019. The campaign, which will also include the Maromba area, is expected to acquire data over a total area of 9,400 km².
Shell intends to use the port bases of Rio and Niterói and the Jacarepaguá Airport to do the logistics of the campaign.
