CGG SA has completed its exit from marine acquisition business, the company said on Jan. 8.
CGG closed its strategic partnership transaction for marine seismic acquisition services with Shearwater GeoServices Holding AS. This transaction fundamentally covers, the purchase by Shearwater of five high-end streamer vessels through the acquisition of Global Seismic Shipping AS, jointly owned by CGG Marine Resources Norge AS and Eidesvik Offshore ASA; the purchase of associated streamer equipment owned by CGG Group; and mutual commitments to secure CGG’s access to strategic vessel capacity for future multiclient projects.
The creation of a joint venture under the Sercel brand for the research and development, manufacturing, commercialization and support of marine streamer seismic acquisition equipment is progressing well and is expected to be finalized during the first half of 2020.
“In 2019, we executed key milestones of our 2021 strategy: the exit from marine and seabed acquisition businesses and the wind down of land acquisition operations. We are delighted to enter into this strategic partnership with Shearwater for our multiclient projects and look forward to finalizing the creation of our marine streamer equipment JV under the Sercel brand,” said Sophie Zurquiyah, CEO of CGG.
