CGG wins Brazil data processing contract for world's largest seismic survey

Friday, July 28, 2017

CGG announced the award by Petrobras of a contract to process the seismic data from a 3D Ocean Bottom Node (OBN) survey covering a full-fold area of 2180 km2 in Brazil's deepwater Santos Basin.

This will be the largest node survey ever acquired and processed in the industry. The survey will be acquired by Seabed Geosolutions, CGG's joint venture with Fugro.

The resulting OBN data set will be processed in CGG's long-established Rio de Janeiro Subsurface Imaging Center, which has the largest computer capacity and greatest expertise in the region.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: 'CGG is a natural choice for this high-profile OBN processing contract given our in-depth geological knowledge of the Santos Basin and our recognized track record and proven advanced technologies for OBN processing. OBN surveys are one option at present for acquiring full-azimuth data offshore Brazil and we will work closely with Seabed Geosolutions to deliver the best images of the subsurface in the highly prospective Santos Basin.'
