Offshore Brazil

On trend, under explored.

A proven landscape for exploration

Brazil continues to have strong investment Interest due to its proven prospective geology, access to acreage (bid round scheduling has been consistent in recent years), and the government’s desire to attract foreign investment. TGS, through its staff in Rio de Janeiro and Houston, closely monitor the ever-changing exploration landscape, and strive to have datasets in key areas ready for analysis prior to the scheduled bid rounds. Plays in Brazil are prolific, found onshore and in both shallow and deep-water offshore environments, with the offshore plays being either conventional or pre-salt exploration plays.

As elsewhere, the TGS exploration programs in Brazil are most often built around basin-specific licensing rounds and are designed to provide regional geological understanding to de-risk prospective bids. A typical set of integrated products would include regional 2D seismic, basin-wide 3D seismic, gravity, magnetics, well data packages, regional multibeam, geochemical analysis, and various interpretive products using all datasets available.

Our Data

Reprocessing

Imagining and data processing technology typically develops at a much faster pace than acquisition technology, driven by advances in compute power.  With its extensive library and intimate knowledge of the regional geology, TGS has led the industry in multi-client reprocessing of seismic data in the GOM.  TGS is currently applying a combination of technologies including Dynamic Matching FWI to improve the velocity and salt model, and increase the frequency content in data.  This reprocessing has strong support from many exploration and production companies and is targeting the Mesozoic level, including the highly prolific Norphlet play, as well as shallower horizons.

Well Data Products

Our solution gives geoscientists the subsurface depth and breadth of knowledge to understand drilling risks, reduce uncertainty, and improve well performance. Fast and easy access to TGS' vast library of well data is available through the R360, our unique subsurface intelligence portal.
