This will be the second 3D campaign with nodes that Petrobras will do in the Lula field. In the past, the oil company hired Seabed Geolutions to pilot the region.

At the moment, the joint venture between Fugro and CGG is running a campaign in Búzios, covering 1,000 km² of geological area and 1,600 km² of area covered by nodes, with a firing range of 2,700 km².

Work began in the last quarter of 2018 and is expected to be completed by the end of October. The campaign is run with the SR / V Vantage seismic vessel and the Subsea Viking M / V node vessel.

In October, Fairfield finalized for Petrobras the acquisition of a 3D seismic record with nodes at the Mero field in Libra. Lasting over a year, the service involved covering an area of ​​1,190 km², with about 734 km² of nodes and a total of 490,000 shots.
