Recent oil and gas exploration and development projects in Latin America, particularly in offshore basins, have increased the hydrocarbon resources of the region considerably. Geophysical technologies have played a significant role in the growth observed across the region, and those technologies will be crucial in the development of smart energy transition alternatives. That is what inspired this special section, which showcases a variety of technology applications, project scopes, scales, depths of investigation, and techniques, representing the diverse solutions required to tackle subsurface challenges in three major growth geographies: the Brazilian presalt, the Caribbean offshore, and the Gulf of Mexico.
