Petrobras has awarded Seabed Geosolutions, a joint venture between Fugro and CGG, to conduct the largest ever 3D ocean bottom node (OBN) survey in the Santos Basin in Brazil.

Seabed Geosolutions’ new Manta node system will be used to conduct the OBN survey, which will span over 1600sqkm. The seven-month, US$90 million contract, set to begin at the end of 4Q 2017 or early 2018.

“We are confident that our crew, in close cooperation with Petrobras, will be setting new safety, data quality and efficiency standards for deep-water nodal surveys allowing for cost effective acquisition in both large scale and 4D projects,” said Stephan Midenet, CEO of Seabed Geosolutions, in a 26 June press release.
