G&G integration enhances acquisition of multi-client studies offshore Gabon ///

Integrated geoscience project to shine light on Gabon South basin. The deepwater area of the Gabon South basin is one of the last underexplored areas of the West Africa Atlantic Margin. CGG is acquiring and imaging a large broadband, multi-client 3D survey, covering over 25,000 km2 in this area, which will form the cornerstone of a major, integrated G&G study of the region. Multi-client surveys provide a cost-effective means of acquiring high-quality data. Costs can be shared, and larger surveys acquired, for a better overall view of the prospectivity than is generally the case with smaller, proprietary surveys. Access to large surveys, in both mature and virgin areas, allows companies to reduce their exploration risk. It also helps to cut the time between the awarding of a license and the drilling of the first well.
