CGG Receives Perdido Subsalt Seismic Imaging Contract From Pemex
Geoscience company CGG received a major contract from Pemex to deliver an orthogonal wide-azimuth (WAZ) integrated solution for subsalt seismic imaging in the Gulf of Mexico’s deepwater Perdido area, CGG said on Oct. 25.
The new WAZ survey, covering about 10,000 sq km (3,861 sq miles), will overlay the existing WAZ seismic data acquired by CGG in 2010. This combined orthogonal WAZ dataset will provide Pemex with enhanced subsalt imaging results because the targets beneath the salt canopy will be better illuminated.
CGG said the survey will begin in early 2017, and the data will be processed in the company’s Villahermosa, Mexico, and Houston subsurface imaging centers.
