PARIS – CGG has released the Fast Trax processed data from its Deux multi-client survey covering 357 blocks in the US Gulf of Mexico. The images have been delivered on schedule less than seven months after completion of the survey.
Deux is the second of a three-survey multi-client program that CGG is conducting in the Garden Banks, Green Canyon, Keathley Canyon, and Walker Ridge areas of the GoM using StagSeis, its next-generation subsalt imaging solution.
CGG is currently acquiring Trois, its third StagSeis survey. The location includes several key prospects and multiple discoveries and covers 293 blocks adjacent to IBALT and Deux.
Fast Trax data is already available from IBALT, the first of the StagSeis surveys in the program covering 221 blocks, and the fully processed data set for IBALT Area A (110 blocks) will be available in August 2014.
“By the end of our three-survey StagSeis program, the equivalent of over 871 U.S. outer Continental shelf blocks, or more than 20,000 sq km (7,722 sq mi), of next-generation seismic images covering the ultra-deepwaters of the Gulf of Mexico will be available to the industry ahead of the 2016-2018 licensing rounds,” said Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG.
