Compagnie Générale de Géophysique (CGG) announces its fourth consecutive season of work in India with the award of a major 3D seismic offshore acquisition contract worth over $100 million.
The deepwater seismic program is to be performed between October 2006 and March 2007 and covers a surface area of 8,600 sq km off the eastern coast.
Full processing will be performed onboard the three 3D seismic vessels using CGG's proprietary software, Geocluster.
"This contract constitutes a clear measure of the quality of our relations with ONGC," states Christophe Pettenati-Auzière, CGG's president, Geophysical Services.
"It marks our commitment to our continued strategy of maintaining a strong presence in India, where the CGG Group regularly conducts deepwater and land acquisition surveys as well as data processing activities with the center we opened in Mumbai last year."
