PARIS – CGGVeritas has completed a 3D BroadSeis survey for Shell over deepwater Gabon salt structures.

To complement a 7,900 sq km (3,050 sq mi) conventional acquisition, the 3D BroadSeis acquired from the CGGVeritas Symphony operated 10 Sercel Sentinel solid streamers with Nautilus control devices. CGGVeritas’ new acquisition and processing program, Dovetail, was deployed to reduce infill and give more regular sampling.

“We are confident that the enhanced low frequencies acquired by BroadSeis will meet the goals of Shell and achieve excellent penetration of the complex salt to provide clearer imaging of the pre-salt targets as well as simultaneously providing unrivalled bandwidth for the investigation of shallow amplitude anomalies,” said Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO.
