CGGVeritas wins 4D seismic contract for offshore Angola

CGGVeritas_Jean-Georges-Malcor-CEOCGGVeritas has announced that it has been awarded a five-year 4D seismic contract following negotiations with Total Exploration & Production Angola and Sonangol

The contract covers the 4D seismic processing and imaging of annual and biennial monitor surveys that are set to take place offshore Angola.

More than 6,000sq km of seismic data from five of Total's deep offshore group of fields (Girassol/Jasmim, Rosa, Dalia/Camelia, Pazflor, and CLOV) in Block 17 are expected to be processed over the contract's duration.

The block is operated by Total in partnership with Statoil, BP and Esso.

The large programme, including fast-track, base and monitor processing, will be shared between the CGGVeritas processing centre in Luanda and the CGGVeritas dedicated processing centre for Total in Pau, France.

The Luanda centre, with support and training from the processing centre in Pau, will offer optimised 4D processing and imaging workflow for each field with a significantly reduced turnaround time.

CGGVeritas has said that this will provide Total Angola's reservoir management teams with the information required and sufficient time for evaluating results to meet field development requirements.

“We look forward to extending our partnership with Sonangol and Total Angola to further contribute to improving hydrocarbon recovery via 4D seismic," said CGGVeritas CEO Jean-Georges Malcor.
