HOUSTON – CGGVeritas says is has completed successfully a broadband marine project offshore Gabon for Total. The BroadSeis project achieved a bandwidth of 2.5 to 150 Hz.

The process “delivers the highest bandwidth images available today and the additional low-frequency signal below 5 Hz provides greater penetration and hence better signal-to-noise ratio for deep targets,” says Benoît Ribadeau-Dumas, executive VP, Marine, CGGVeritas. “The very high-resolution images achieved by BroadSeis have been able to reveal important geologic features such as thin beds, stratigraphic traps and potential shallow hazards that were not visible in conventional data.”
