CGG to execute OBN survey in UK Central North Sea

Published by
Oilfield Technology,


CGG has announced a programme to deliver the largest OBN multi-client survey ever conducted in the UK Central North Sea (CNS). Planned to start in early 2020, the survey has already received significant industry interest and is being prefunded in part by BP. First results are targeted for 1Q21.

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."
