In this paper we explore the West Africa - South America analogue proven by the Jubilee and Zaedyus discoveries in Ghana and French Guiana, respectively. Instead of the Turonian turbidite fan reservoirs, we consider younger unproven deep water channel systems in Foz do Amazonas Basin in Brazil which could be analogous to the Campanian pay found in the Teak field in Ghana. We present a geological overview of the basin together with acquisition details and imaging results of a regional 3D CSEM survey in the area. Using CSEM as a fluid indicator, we calculate the Net Rock Volume (NRV) from a channelshaped EM anomaly and with conservative parameterization we obtain a P10/P90 ratio of 14.7 and an average NRVof∼23000hm3.
