CGG launches multi-client ocean bottom node survey in the Gulf of Mexico
CGG has started its first multi-client ocean bottom node survey in the Mississippi Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico.
Located in the north-central region of the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi Canyon Node survey will provide well-sampled, full azimuthal coverage with long offsets.
Acquisition services are being provided by Seabed Geosolutions and the data will be processed by CGG Geoscience’s Subsurface Imaging in Houston. Implementation of the company’s OBN processing techniques is said to provide a fine-tuned velocity model and improved definition of drilling targets. Preliminary products are expected to be available in 3Q 2019, and final products are expected in 1Q 2020.
CEO Sophie Zurquiyah said: “We are pleased to initiate our first multi-client OBN survey, in this strongly growing market, as clients take advantage of the enhanced geologic understandings that OBN data and advanced imaging can deliver.”
