Studies in Brazil
and geophysicists from the national oil company Petrobras,
together with Bureau researchers, worked together during 19721982
to conduct proprietary reservoir characterization studies of Brazilian
offshore basins. These basins included Sergipe-Alagoas, Espirito-Santo,
Potiguar, and Foz do Amazonas. The geoscientists worked to interpret,
describe, and document the stratigraphic, local, and regional depositional
facies relationships of these basins using seismic, core, well,
and paleontologic data.
were conducted again in 19771980. Although the research results
are proprietary, Bureau scientists published an

Brown, Jr., and William
L. Fisher worked once again with teams of Brazilian scientists
to integrate previous offshore basins studies.
