Thailand’s PTT Exploration & Production Public Co. (PTTEP) has renewed its contract with Paris-based geophysical firm CGG for CGG to continue operating PTTEP’s dedicated processing center (DPC) in Bangkok.
CGG has operated the center on PTTEP’s behalf since November 2013, and will operate the center another three years, from 1 March 2017 to 28 February 2020.
The DPC is a key component in PTTEP’s strategy to invest in new technology to boost precision and efficiency in exploration and production. CGG will continue to support PTTEP by delivering high-quality processing services, including advanced time and depth imaging, for 2D and 3D onshore and offshore seismic data acquired in PTTEP’s operating areas worldwide.
As part of its longstanding commitment to Thailand’s E&P industry, CGG will also provide in-house processing training, technology updates and mentoring support to develop PTTEP’s seismic processing experts required for PTTEP’s growing business in Thailand and overseas, CGG said.
“CGG has been involved in most of the discoveries made in Thailand over the last 50 years. During that time, we have gained very deep in-country operational experience and developed a strong long-term business relationship with PTTEP,” said CGG CEO Jean-Georges Malcor in the release. “We are delighted that they wish to continue benefitting from our advanced subsurface imaging technology, expertise and service excellence in house to help them explore for new discoveries and increase recovery from their petroleum reservoir assets to secure domestic supply and support country growth.”
