Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff has authorized licensing Round 11 for assets offshore Brazil. The event is anticipated to be held in May 2013.
Spectrum, a provider of Multi-Client seismic surveys and seismic imaging services to the global oil and gas industry, recently acquired 38,588 km of new long offset 2D seismic data covering the Foz do Amazonas, Barreirinhas, Ceará and Potiguar Basins in the Northern Equatorial Margins offshore Brazil. The company is currently undergoing a re-processing effort on a seismic dataset tying the Foz do Amazonas, Pará-Maranhão and Barreirinhas Basins. Spectrum offers over 48,000 km of Multi-Client seismic in the area.
Spectrum's Multi-Client seismic data is located in all offshore basins that are included in Round 11 and cover most of the Sector Block Areas that have been released by the ANP as the basis for the final block selection. Final PSTM, PSDM and other ancillary products are available or will be available from Spectrum for Round 11.
