The document will be valid for 1 year and 30 days. Data acquisition will be carried out by Shearwater Geoservices do Brasil.

The license authorizes the activity to be carried out within the authorized polygon. During the surveys, the following node installation vessels may be used: Skandi Constructor, Skandi Acergy, Geosund, Skandi Neptune and Geoholm. The survey will also feature the seismic source vessel SW Diamond.
