CGG back in Gulf of Mexico

CGG has been selected to carry out a large high-end seismic acquisition survey in the Gulf of Mexico on behalf of Pemex. 

The survey, in Mexican waters, is phase 5 in Pemex’s Centauro program, the largest ever proprietary 3D wide-azimuth program to be conducted worldwide, says CGG.

Phase 5 will add 6850sq km of data to the existing 25,000sq km already acquired since Centauro began in October 2010, bringing the total volume to almost 32,000sq km.

The survey will be acquired by the Oceanic Vega and Oceanic Sirius, CGG’s two state-of-the-art 20-streamer vessels.

The project is expected to start in mid-November and complete in March 2014.

Antonio Escalera, VP, exploration, Pemex, says: “Since Pemex took the innovative step of adopting wide-azimuth acquisition in 2010, this technology has consistently demonstrated its reliability at delivering superior illumination and imaging to help explore Mexico’s deep water hydrocarbon resources.”
