CGG launches reimaging projects in Côte d'Ivoire

Published by , Deputy Editor
Oilfield Technology,

CGG, in association with Côte d’Ivoire's Direction Générale des Hydrocarbures (DGH) and PETROCI Holding (PETROCI), has announced two new multi-client 3D reimaging programmes, CDI24 Phase I (3120 km²) and Phase II (6610 km²). Both projects are supported by the industry, with Phase I commencing immediately and Phase II planned for H1 2025.

These new programmes will be merged with the CDI23 (6430 km2) reimaged data (originally marketed as 2023/2024 PDSM), to create a seamless and contiguous total volume of over 16 000 km², overlapping the recently announced Calao discovery and adjacent to the Baleine field.

Drawing on its geoscience expertise, CGG is utilising its latest proprietary imaging technologies and specialised high-performance computing to provide the best possible results from legacy 3D seismic to support exploration offshore Côte d'Ivoire. These tools, including time-lag FWI, Q-FWI, Q-Kirchhoff and advanced deghosting and demultiple techniques, aim to produce clearer images of the deep structural plays not visible in the legacy data, as well as imaging the Calao Cenomanian and Baleine Carbonate fairways, providing a step-change in understanding of the opportunities in the region.

Dechun Lin, EVP, Earth Data, CGG, said: “CGG is supporting the energy industry by using innovative imaging technology to create new value from existing seismic data in the region. These premium reimaged data sets will provide an all-encompassing and highly accurate view of Côte d'Ivoire's potential, empowering the industry to de-risk future exploration and unlock new energy reserves confidently.”
