Subsurface imaging, part of CGG’s Geoscience division, has been awarded a large-scale seismic imaging project in the offshore Orphan Basin in Eastern Canada by BHP on Sept. 5.
In line with its continued investments in high-end imaging technology, supercomputing capacity and digitalization, CGG will employ its industry-leading FWI and least-squares migration algorithms over the entire survey area of more than 10,000 sq km (3,861 sq miles). Through these advanced technologies and close collaboration with the client’s interpretation and imaging geophysicists, CGG fully commits to providing a step-change in subsurface imaging in a timely manner to support E&P investment decisions.
“Major oil companies are increasingly seeking higher-quality seismic images to mitigate risks and improve success in both mature and frontier deepwater basins,” Tony Huang, vice president, U.S. Subsurface Imaging, CGG, said.
“Our consistent investments in people and imaging technology innovation through the seismic sector downturn have enabled CGG to continue to provide an unmatched level of services and image quality. This important award will further solidify our position as the leader in high-end seismic imaging,” he added.
With an ongoing emphasis on capital discipline—and a drive to generate FCF—will the U.S. E&P sector moderate its production growth?
With sharply lower activity in equity and debt issuance, bankers look to niche markets and M&A.
One can only hope that some of the worst for energy is behind us, and that some of what is forecast to come doesn’t materialize.
