Fugro puts seep-hunting expertise to use offshore Brazil

Fugro has started hunting for hydrocarbon seeps in a 200,000-square-kilometre area offshore Brazil under a survey for geoscience data company TGS.

The purpose-built vessels Fugro Brasilis and Fugro Searcher have been deployed to acquire high-resolution multibeam echosounder and sub-bottom profiler data in the Campos and Santos Basins.

The survey is designed to mirror TGS’s successful 2016-2017 Gigante and Otos projects in the Gulf of Mexico.

Fugro will use the data to identify and recommend the most prospective locations to target for geochemical sampling.
