French company CGG has signed an agreement with GNPC Operating Services Company (GOSCO), an independent Ghanaian E&P services company, to form a joint-venture company dedicated to conducting high-end 2D, 3D and 4D marine seismic acquisition and related services in Ghana waters.
The primary aim of the joint venture, GOSCO Geoscience Limited (GGSL) based in Accra, is to provide seismic vessels and marine seismic acquisition technologies and services to the oil and gas industry operating in Ghana.
“We have joined forces with GOSCO to set up this joint venture as a response to recent growing industry interest in Ghana’s oil and gas potential. This move is another example of CGG’s strategy to work in partnership with local oil and gas players to benefit from their experience of working in the country while bringing them the benefit of CGG’s global expertise as a leading technology provider. We believe this joint venture will create a strong vehicle for growth in Ghana’s E&P industry,” said Jean-Georges Malcor, ceo of CGG.
