French Geophysical Firm Given Contract To Map Caribbean Floor For Oil Exploration

CGG exploration

PARIS — CGG has been awarded an extension to a major 3D seismic survey that the company successfully completed on the Caribbean coast, offshore Colombia, in late 2015.

CGG is a French-based geophysical services company founded in 1931.

The new survey follows on from the original 16,000-plus km2 survey CGG conducted over portions of Blocks Col-1 and Col-2, which was the largest survey ever recorded offshore Colombia.

This major extension is expected to start in February. The additional data will also be processed in CGG’s Houston subsurface imaging center.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said, “This survey extension is the latest in a series of projects we have conducted for this key client offshore Colombia since 2013 and indicates the continuing satisfaction with CGG’s seismic technology and operational performance.”
