CGG awarded industry-first 3D OBN Nile delta imaging contract by bp

ORA 3D sesimic images 6 julyCGG has been awarded a project by bp and JV Partner Pharaonic Petroleum Co for the 3D seismic imaging of the first OBN survey ever conducted in the Nile delta covering the Atoll and Atoll North fields

CGG will apply its high-end OBS & FWI imaging technologies, expertise and specialised HPC from its UK and Cairo imaging centres to deliver the highest-quality 3D seismic images of pre-Messinian targets with greater velocity model detail, image bandwidth and AVO reliability for improved field development planning and near-field exploration.

Peter Whiting, employee value proposition, Geoscience, CGG, said, “This new 3D OBN imaging project is the first of its kind in the Nile delta. With our in-depth geological knowledge of the region, based on our 35 year operating experience in Egypt, and our industry-leading OBS imaging technology, I have every confidence in CGG’s ability to overcome the seismic imaging challenges in this area and deliver the best possible subsurface insight to bp and joint-venture partners at Atoll.”
