CGG Begins OBN Survey in Gulf of Mexico
CGG has started its first multi-client ocean bottom node (OBN) survey, located in the north-central region of the Gulf of Mexico.
The OBN survey will provide well-sampled, full azimuthal coverage with long offsets, to deliver exceptional data for imaging the geologically complex structures in Mississippi Canyon.
Acquisition services are being provided by Seabed Geosolutions and the data will be processed by CGG Geoscience’s Subsurface Imaging in Houston.
Preliminary products will be available in Q3 2019, and final products are expected in Q1, 2020.
Supported by industry prefunding, CGG’s Mississippi Canyon Node survey paves the way for further CGG multi-client OBN surveys in the future, the company noted.
Sophie Zurquiyah, CEO, CGG, 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.”
