French seismic acquisition specialist CGG has been awarded a contract for onshore and offshore survey in Ivory Coast.
Under the contract with Ivory Coast’s Direction Générale des Hydrocarbures (DGH) and PETROCI, the national oil company, CGG will acquire, a multi-client program of gravity, gravity gradiometry and magnetic data over the Republic’s onshore and shallow offshore basins.
The scheduled five-month program will acquire approximately 28,000 line km of data over onshore and shallow offshore licenses, subject to industry pre-funding commitments. The contract includes an option to acquire a further 26,000 line km over the deepwater offshore licenses.
CGG said the program represented an important step for Cote d’Ivoire to open up further plays in both its onshore and offshore basins.
Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG said: “CGG is pleased to work with DGH and PETROCI, through our partnership with Harvex Geosolutions, to help fast-track exploration programs in Côte d’Ivoire.”
