CGG promises the largest OBN survey on the UK CNS

CGG plans to start the survey early 2020, for which they have already received significant industry interest. It is being prefunded in part by BP. First results are targeted for Q1 2021.

The focus area is the UK Central North Sea (CNS), where complex salt diapirism has created significant challenges to imaging deeper reservoir targets, this new survey, with its long-offset, full-azimuth coverage and good low-frequency signal in a shallow water environment, together with CGG’s advanced imaging technology, will provide a step-change in seismic image and reservoir characterization quality.

In the first phase of this multi-year program, CGG aims to acquire over 2,000 km2 of OBN data.
