TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co. and Dolphin Geophysical will shoot a multiclient 3D survey designed to image presalt plays in the Campos basin offshore Brazil.

The 5,000 sq km Olho de Boi survey is to be shot northeast of the Pao de Acucar discovery in an area of similar structural and stratigraphic characteristics.

TGS-NOPEC said it conducted considerable geologic review and reprocessing of existing 2D data to ensure strategic placement of the survey in a highly prospective area in the Campos basin.

TGS-NOPEC will process the data acquired by the M/V Sanco Swift using proprietary broadband technology and make data available to clients in the last quarter of 2014.
