CGG has completed an extension of its Santos VII broadband 3D multi-client survey offshore Brazil. The 1867 km2 extension to the original footprint gives CGG a total of almost 16 000 km2 of newly acquired and imaged pre-salt coverage.

The extension was made in order to fully image this highly prospective area after images recently delivered from the fast-track PSDM over a priority area of the Saturno field clearly indicated further structure to the east. This addition will aid in the interpretation and understanding of the Saturno field well in advance of the May 2018 lease round.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO of CGG, said: “Having the fast-track data available so soon after acquisition and working in close client consultation increased our confidence to extend our Santos VII survey. This addition to our already very large 3D multi-client library in the Santos Basin underlines our commitment to offering the industry ultramodern exploration data sets to support the next pre-salt licensing round.”
