CGG completes large airborne survey in Australia
PARIS -- CGG has completed a large FALCON Airborne Gravity Gradiometer (AGG) survey for Buru Energy Limited in the Canning Superbasin, Western Australia.
Acquisition of the 43,951 line km survey at 1,000 m line spacing began at the end of September and was completed at the end of November. CGG won this survey as a follow-up to the Yakka Munga survey it conducted for Buru Energy last year over their Ungani discovery well in an adjacent block within the Canning basin.
Buru Energy decided to fly AGG over more of their expanding acreage in the Canning, as it provided a rapid and effective evaluation of remote areas, where ground access was difficult. Interpreted AGG data provided early understanding of geological structure, enabling new seismic acquisition to be more strategically located for their ongoing exploration program.
Benoit Ribadeau-Dumas, senior executive V.P., Acquisition, CGG, said, “CGG was selected for this second Falcon AGG survey based on the success of the Ungani survey, the close working relationship that developed between Buru and CGG geoscientists during their joint interpretation of the AGG data and CGG’s proven high-quality, efficient and safe data acquisition performance.”
