French-based geophysical services company CGG said it has delivered broadband 4D seismic results ahead of schedule from BP Angola’s latest monitor survey offshore Angola.
The enhanced imaging volumes from the Greater Plutonio development in the Lower Congo Basin were delivered by CGG Subsurface Imaging, part of CGG’s Geoscience division, within an eight week timeframe, four weeks early. Faster than expected completion of this workflow, which included the latest advanced proprietary deghosting and demultiple technology, was made possible by continued investment in high-performance computing capacity and technology advances, along with close collaboration with the BP team, CGG said.
Radwa El Zidan, geophysicist from the BP-Angola asset team, said, “We were very impressed by the CGG team’s commitment to achieving an early delivery of the data on what was already a challenging schedule. The early delivery of results will accelerate our active reservoir management program for this field.”
Peter Whiting, SVP Geoscience EAME, CGG, said, “This exceptional performance is a result of CGG’s commitment to working closely with clients to support their ambitions to reduce cycle times without compromising quality. We continue to invest in the latest technology, compute resources and talented people to deliver best-in-class products with exceptional turnaround times that accelerate decision-making on time-critical projects.”
