CGGVeritas confirmed that Ardiseis, its regional joint venture with TAQA in Oman and the wider Middle East region, has been awarded a three-year firm contract with an option for a further one-year extension for the high-channel-count, high-productivity 3D land seismic operations it is currently conducting in Oman on behalf of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO).
A step-change in the resolution of the seismic imaging is expected at all subsurface target levels, through implementation of a high-density acquisition configuration deploying the Sercel Nomad 90 vibrator, and the CGGVeritas proprietary broadband vibroseis technique, EmphaSeis. These two new technologies will enable improved penetration of the seismic signal, resulting in a high-density dataset containing frequencies down to 1.5 hertz, claimed the company.
This contract award marks over 20 years of continuous land seismic presence by CGGVeritas in Oman.
