ION provides a robust regional framework of the Punta del Este, Pelotas and Oriental del Plata Basins located off the coast of Uruguay, one of the southern hemisphere's most under-explored offshore regions.  UruguaySPAN encompasses 2,800 km of high-quality data which has been depth-imaged to 40 kilometers.  The BasinSPAN data links with our existing ArgentineSPANBrasilSPAN and PelotasSPAN surveys, imaging the northern Argentine and southern Brazilian basins.
