Subsurface Imaging, part of CGG’s Geoscience division, has been awarded a processing contract by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), CGG announced on Tuesday.
The French based geosciences company said it will perform high-end time and depth imaging of massive volumes of very high-spec data from what is believed to be the world’s largest ocean-bottom node (OBN) seismic survey to date.
Starting in May 2019 – and for a period of at least five years, during the maximum seven-year contract period – CGG will process a minimum 20,000 square kilometers of high-density wide-azimuth OBN seismic data at its Abu Dhabi geoscience center.
The award also includes optional reservoir characterization work.
According to CGG, the sustained level of activity is expected to strengthen tailored R&D cooperation between the two companies and give ADNOC access to CGG’s wider service offerings.
