MASSY, France – CGG will soon start acquiring a multi-client 3D survey offshore Mozambique, after signing an agreement with the country’s Instituto Nacional de Petroleo (INP).

The survey will comprise up to 40,000 sq km (15,444 sq mi) of data over the Beira High in the Zambezi Delta, covering blocks Z5-C and Z5-D and surrounding open acreage.

CGG has undertaken to deliver fasttrack PreSTM, Final PreSTM and PreSDM volumes, and will apply its latest 3D broadband de-ghosting and advanced de-multiple, velocity modeling and imaging techniques, including full-waveform inversion.

This survey will form part of theJumpStart geoscience program designed to improve understanding of the prospectivity of the region. Marine gravity and magnetic data will be acquired simultaneously with the seismic to speed up regional interpretation.
