In the CNS, where complex salt diapirism has created significant challenges to imaging deeper reservoir targets, this new survey, with its long-offset, full-azimuth coverage and good low-frequency signal in a shallow water environment, together with CGG’s advanced imaging technology, will provide a step-change in seismic image and reservoir characterisation quality. In the first phase of this multi-year programme, CGG aims to acquire over 2000 km2 of OBN data.
Sophie Zurquiyah, CEO, CGG, said: “We are pleased to initiate this exciting new OBN program which will deliver unprecedented industry insight and lead to a step-change in development in this critical Central North Sea area. Our asset-light configuration enables us to best take advantage of key opportunities and fully leverage our core capabilities. The new data set will also complement CGG’s extensive high-quality Cornerstone towed-streamer data library in the area and support the UK Oil & Gas Authority’s strategy for Maximizing Economic Recovery."
