The operator retained CGGVeritas to shoot the 2,190 sq km survey, which is the first commercial wide-azimuth project using the patented BroadSeis technology. The geophysical company said the contract offered an opportunity to demonstrate the value of the technology relative to subvolcanic imaging in subbasalt areas.
