CGG to conduct first orthogonal wide-azimuth program offshore Mexico

Offshore staff

PARISPEMEX has contracted CGG to deliver an orthogonal wide-azimuth integrated solution designed to optimize subsalt seismic imaging in the deepwater Perdido area.

A new wide-azimuth survey, covering about 10,000 sq km (3,861 sq mi), will be acquired perpendicularly over the existing wide-azimuth seismic data acquired by CGG in 2010.

Imaging of this first large-scale combined orthogonal wide-azimuth dataset for PEMEX is expected to provide enhanced subsalt imaging results due to the improved illumination of the targets beneath the complex salt canopy.

The survey will begin in early 2017 with delivery of Fast Trax pre-stack depth migration RTM results by the end of the year and full production processing results in 2018. The data will be processed in CGG’s Villahermosa and Houston subsurface imaging centers.
