Pemex awards CGG large survey in Gulf of Mexico
PARIS -- CGG has been selected to conduct a large, high-end seismic acquisition survey in the Mexican waters of the Gulf of Mexico on behalf of Pemex.
The survey is phase 5 in Pemex’s Centauro program, the largest ever proprietary 3D wide-azimuth program to be conducted worldwide. Phase 5 will add another 6,850 sq km of data to the existing 25,000 sq km already acquired since Centauro began in Oct 2010, bringing the total volume to almost 32,000 sq km.
The survey will be acquired by the Oceanic Vega and Oceanic Sirius, CGG’s two state-of-the-art 20-streamer vessels. The project is expected to commence in mid-November and be completed in March 2014.
