Schlumberger WesternGeco and ION Geophysical Corp. said Sept. 7 that the Campeche 3-D reimaging program, a new 3-D multiclient reimaging broadband program offshore southern Mexico, comprises three survey areas in the Bay of Campeche.

The program will be processed using a combination of custom technologies and techniques from both organizations that will maximize data quality and offer geological insights for upcoming licensing rounds.

The program is fully supported by industry funding. Fast-track data are available now for Round 1.4 deepwater bid preparation decisions.

The program uses Mexico's National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) data library.

The complexity and variability of the geological areas being surveyed require a set of consistent, advanced workflows to maximize bandwidth, while producing data with strong low frequency content for subsalt areas and high-resolution data for non-salt areas of the basin.
