It let a multiclient contract to CGG to acquire 35,000 sq km of broad-band 3D data over available and recently awarded deepwater blocks and 9,900 line-km of 2D data over the country’s ultradeepwater area (OGJ Online, Aug. 11, 2014).

In an initial program phase expected to last 7 months, the contractor will start acquiring almost 24,000 sq km of 3D data in the fourth quarter of 2014. It will perform depth imaging of the data in the UK.
