CGG has announced that it has been awarded a multi-year integrated geoscience study by Kuwait Gulf Oil Company (KGOC) to identify resource growth potential in the onshore Partitioned Zone (PZ).

The geoscience study will be conducted by CGG GeoConsulting and, importantly, involve KGOC geoscience experts embedded in the project team.

The combined team will work together to integrate recently acquired and processed 3D seismic data covering the entire PZ together with multiple geological, petrophysical and production data sets in order to deliver a robust portfolio of exploration prospects and asset development infill opportunities. In addition, the final geologic and seismic interpretations and data will form a consistent and continuous PZ-wide reference study for KGOC with detailed subsets for each producing field.

Mohammad Al-Haimer, Director for Exploration Project Kuwait, KGOC, said: “We are pleased to work with CGG on this prestigious and highly important project for KGOC. We were impressed with their in-house integrated geoscience capabilities, their experience in performing similar studies for NOC’s and IOC’s around the world, and the depth of knowledge that we expect CGG will bring to this project. We look forward to working closely with CGG and together identifying the resource growth potential of the PZ onshore.”

Sophie Zurquiyah, COO, CGG, said: “We are honoured to have been selected by KGOC to undertake this high-profile integrated study. It will draw upon the recognised expertise, capabilities and know-how of our GeoConsulting team who have considerable experience in performing large exploration- and reservoir characterisation-scale studies integrating many complex geoscience data sets. We look forward to this opportunity to showcase the full range of our geoscience services, from geological control through rock physics and seismic inversion to prospect identification and production attribute analysis. We are confident that our support will deliver insight and value to KGOC to help it achieve its business objectives.”
