One way to decrease the cost and time of seismic data acquisition is to design sparser surveys by decimating the number of shots and receivers used. The tradeoffs associated with such decimations are investigated further here, using ocean-bottom node (OBN) data from a complex geological setting in a pre-salt play of the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil.
Mexico’s Tampico-Misantla Basin is potentially one of the richest unconventional oil and gas resources in the world. The development of these resources could significantly increase Mexico’s daily production of oil and gas, and bring in enough income to rejuvenate the national oil company, PEMEX, and help get the economy back on its feet.
Suriname is offering eight new offshore blocks in the underexplored Shallow Offshore (SHO) acreage, which are in close proximity to a string of deepwater hydrocarbon discoveries and billion barrel in-place onshore oil fields.
Multi-client geoscience provider Searcher offers Argentina Explorers Package, which includes seismic and well data, to support oil and gas exploration in the onshore Neuquén and Cuyo Basins in the Mendoza province of Argentina.
