CRAWLEY, UK -- Maersk Oil has awarded CGGVeritas a three-year contract to provide high-end seismic data processing and imaging services.
Work will be performed from a recently inaugurated, dedicated processing center (DPC) at Maersk’s offices in Copenhagen.

A team of CGGVeritas geophysicists is based at the DPC, specializing in time, depth, 4D and ocean bottom cable (OBC) processing and imaging. Maersk will also have access to the latest CGGVeritas seismic technologies.

Troels Albrechtsen, Senior VP Corporate Technology & Projects, Maersk Oil, said: "This fit-for-purpose DPC provides us with the agility to identify, test and implement the seismic technologies needed to support and sustain our growth ambitions. With our initial commitment to a three-year contract, we shall test our ability to go from a client-service provider relationship to a real technology partnership."

Colin Murdoch, Executive Vice President, Processing, Imaging & Reservoir, CGGVeritas, said: "Dedicated Processing Centers, of which we now have 14, are a core strategy for CGGVeritas, enabling us to offer our clients a tailored service within their environment that meets their specific requirements with a high level of efficiency and quality.

“The launch of this new DPC builds on our already excellent relationship with Maersk Oil with whom we have worked on many successful projects recently in Angola, Denmark, Norway, Qatar and the UK.”
