CGG Wins extension for Oman Dedication center, starts Multi-physics Imaging for more subsurface understanding
CGG announced the extension, until the end of 2021, of its contract with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) for the provision of subsurface imaging technology and services at its dedicated processing center (DPC) in Muscat.
Within the terms of the extension, the DPC’s capacity, resources and responsibilities will be expanded to respond to the specific requirements of PDO’s data acquisition strategy. CGG will also reinforce its significant In-Country Value initiatives, such as developing expert local staff, onsite training, and educational and mentoring support to Sultan Qaboos University.
CGG has operated the DPC in a highly collaborative working relationship with PDO since 1994. Its experienced land processing specialists deliver the full range of time and depth imaging services to process PDO’s very large, predominantly high-density wide-azimuth onshore seismic data sets and are recognized for their technical excellence and innovative spirit.
Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: “CGG’s Muscat DPC is the largest and longest-running center of its kind in the Middle East. Over the years, CGG and PDO have established a strong partnership based on trust and a shared ambition to go the extra mile to achieve the very best results to meet PDO’s business objectives. We are therefore delighted to continue accompanying PDO in their ambitious strategy to successfully explore the potential of the most geologically complex parts of Oman.”
CGG Starts a multi-physics imaging for more complete subsurface understanding
CGG’s Multi-Physics business line has launched its Multi-Physics Imaging group, consolidating its recognized expertise in multi-physics data processing and interpretation, trusted technical consulting services and specialized commercial software development into a single global team.
Multi-Physics Imaging routinely provides geologically consistent Earth models, such as this Magnetotelluric conductivity inversion integrated with drilling data to define a hydrocarbon prospect.
As a complement to CGG’s leading seismic Subsurface Imaging capabilities, Multi-Physics Imaging helps oil and gas, geothermal and mining companies around the world gain a more complete understanding of the subsurface by optimizing the value of non-seismic geophysical data in their exploration workflows.
The Multi-Physics Imaging team provides processing, analysis, modeling, inversion, and interpretation expertise across the full range of geophysical methods, onshore and offshore. Highly experienced geoscientists use a proprietary imaging toolbox to produce geologically-consistent earth models which integrate available well, seismic and satellite data to improve subsurface understanding and reduce exploration risk.
Multi-Physics Imaging is also a provider of leading commercial software for data processing and inversion, which it will continue to develop and support to ensure that the natural resource exploration industry is properly equipped to realize the full value of multi-physics datasets.
Pascal Rouiller, COO of CGG, said: “This launch recognizes the importance of CGG’s non-seismic imaging capabilities, which are the largest and most diverse in the industry. Multi-Physics Imaging further strengthens our excellent technical reputation, complementing our high-end data acquisition services and highlighting our commitment to provide integrated, flexible and high-end multi-physics solutions to meet the needs of our clients.”
CGG is a fully integrated Geoscience company providing leading geological, geophysical and reservoir capabilities to its broad base of customers primarily from the global oil and gas industry. Through its three complementary businesses of Equipment, Acquisition and Geology, Geophysics & Reservoir (GGR), CGG brings value across all aspects of natural resource exploration and exploitation.
CGG employs around 5,600 people around the world, all with a Passion for Geoscience and working together to deliver the best solutions to its customers.
