CGG Starts Espirito Santo IV survey offshore Brazil

Paris, France - August 29, 2017

CGG announces the start of work on Espirito Santo IV, a large BroadSeis(TM) 3D multi-client survey in the deep and ultra-deep waters of the Espirito Santo Basin offshore Brazil.

The Oceanic Champion is acquiring the survey which is expected to take seven months. This industry-supported survey will cover 10,300 sq km and be processed at CGG`s Rio de Janeiro Subsurface Imaging center. The high-end broadband sequence will include the latest 3D deghosting, Full-Waveform Inversion (FWI) velocity modeling and Tilted Transverse Isotropy (TTI) imaging. Fast-Track PSDM products will be delivered six months after completion of the acquisition.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: "This new survey will expand our high-quality coverage across the Espirito Santo Basin, enhancing industry understanding of exploration potential in this promising region with an upcoming lease round. It reflects CGG`s commitment to invest in the innovative products required to support the successful development of Brazil`s oil and gas resources."
