CGG has been awarded a multi-year contract by Equinor for 4D seismic imaging of multiple towed-streamer and OBC datasets from the Gullfaks field area in the Norwegian North Sea. Equinor’s Gullfaks asset team will analyse the resulting 4D seismic images to optimise recovery and value from the field.
Peter Whiting, EVP, Geoscience, CGG, said: “This new 4D imaging contract testifies to CGG’s close working partnership with Equinor and builds on our longstanding 4D seismic imaging experience in Norway and specifically the Tampen area. Our team in Norway will apply our unique high-end OBS and 4D imaging technologies and expertise to deliver the highest-quality 4D images to improve reservoir monitoring and enhance the asset team’s production management strategies.”
Starting on 1 May 2022, the 4D imaging contract covers the reimaging of nine vintages of towed-streamer data and eight vintages of OBC data followed by repeat imaging of up to three subsequent monitoring surveys.
