BP, CGG to develop marine seismic technology

October 28, 2014

BP and CGG entered into an agreement for collaborative research and development in the field of new types of marine vibratory seismic sources.

The agreement combines the companies’ research efforts and expertise to develop and deploy innovative seismic source technology, and builds on successful prototype trials. 

Seismic surveys have for decades been the exploration industry’s key tool for identifying oil- and gas-bearing rocks below the seabed. And both BP and CGG recognize the significant potential for new vibratory seismic sources to improve technical performance, while maintaining a focus on environmental sensitivity.
