French geoscience company CGG has announced that subsidiary Subsurface Imaging has been awarded a landmark processing contract by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
Under the contract, CGG 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.
CGG will process a minimum 20,000 sq km of high-density wide-azimuth OBN seismic data at its Abu Dhabi geoscience center.
The contract is for a minimum period of five years and a maximum period of seven years.
“CGG was selected for this record-breaking OBN processing contract, the largest ever awarded, on the strength of our reputation for service excellence and OBN processing pedigree. We are confident that close technical collaboration between our two companies on this strategic project will ensure that ADNOC gains the full value from their OBN investment. It will provide them with the reservoir insight required to support ADNOC’s 2030 smart growth strategy,” said Sophie Zurquiyah, CEO of CGG.
