CGG signs agreement with Mozambique Ministry for vast offshore program

Friday, September 8, 2017

CGG announces that it has signed a multi-client data agreement with Mozambique's Instituto Nacional de Petroleo (INP) following a competitive tender process held by INP in 2016.

As a result of this agreement, CGG will shortly commence acquisition of a new multi-client survey of up to 40,000 km2 of 3D data over the Beira High in the Zambezi Delta, covering blocks Z5-C and Z5-D and surrounding open acreage.

Deliverables will include fast-track PreSTM, Final PreSTM and PreSDM. The seismic data will be imaged with the latest 3D broadband deghosting and advanced demultiple, velocity modeling and imaging techniques, including Full-Waveform Inversion.

This survey will form part of a comprehensive, fully integrated JumpStart geoscience program that will deliver a better overall understanding of the prospectivity of the region. Marine gravity and magnetic data will be acquired simultaneously with the seismic to accelerate regional interpretation.


Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: 'This agreement marks the beginning of a fruitful partnership with the INP to promote the potential of the Zambezi basin and other regions of Mozambique. Our advanced 3D seismic and integrated geoscience program will enable oil companies to confidently de-risk this exciting new exploration area and accelerate development of the country's resources.'
