Schlumberger, ION Team Up for Seismic Reimaging Off Mexico
- Operations & Maintenance
Schlumberger WesternGeco and ION Geophysical announced a new 3D multi-client reimaging broadband program offshore Mexico, which uses Mexico’s National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) data library.
The Campeche 3D reimaging program comprises three survey areas covering approximately 82,000 km2 in the Bay of Campeche offshore southern Mexico.
ION president and chief executive officer, Brian Hanson, said, “We are pleased to be collaborating with WesternGeco on such a large project offshore Mexico, where we anticipate continued strong client interest. The Campeche 3D reimaging program area is in one of the most challenging, yet prospective regions offshore Mexico where we have significant processing experience and expertise.”
Maurice Nessim, president, WesternGeco, said, “We are confident this collaboration will bring value to our customers through the highest quality imaging, which will improve their understanding of the complex subsurface geology in this area. We expect to see a significant improvement in subsalt and above-salt imaging to better inform our customers through their licensing rounds and development decisions.”
The program is fully supported by industry funding.
