CGG wraps up Perdido survey for Pemex

CGG has completed ahead of schedule an 11,500 sq km wide-azimuth (WAZ) survey on behalf of Pemex in the deepwater Perdido area, the company said on Tuesday.

According the the seismic company, the survey has been acquired perpendicularly to existing WAZ data and the combined Imaging of this first large-scale orthogonal WAZ data set is expected to provide significantly enhanced subsalt imaging results.

A fast-track TTI RTM image for the first block of approximately 5,200 sq. km was delivered earlier than planned, helping to guide the client’s drilling operations.

This survey also saw the first deployment of Sercel’s QuietSea™ next-generation Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) system in the Mexican Gulf of Mexico after receiving accreditation from ASEA, Mexico’s oil and gas environmental authority, CGG said.

CGG added that the system was integrated into the five-vessel WAZ fleet and “demonstrated its reliability and ease-of-use for providing clear and accurate mammal localization information during seismic operations.”

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: “Our delivery of Mexico’s first orthogonal WAZ data set ahead of schedule marks another outstanding operational performance by CGG. We also demonstrated our technology edge and environmental responsibility by successfully deploying the QuietSea system on this complex multi-vessel operation.”
