This paper is the case history of an ultra-deepwater 4-C seismic program, recently acquired in the Campos and Santos basins, offshore Brazil. All aspects of the program will be discussed, including the feasibility study which first indicated the potential value of multicomponent technology to this region, to the survey objectives, to the illumination analysis used in designing the survey, to the field operations, to the fully processed results. Acquisition was completed on 19 April 2005, and the fully processed data were delivered in early November 2005.
