CGG, Fairfield Geotechnologies join forces on large WAZ survey in Louisiana’s Austin Chalk

6/6/2019

HOUSTON -- CGG and Fairfield Geotechnologies have signed a cooperation agreement to acquire a large-scale, multi-client survey in south-central Louisiana. The new 578-mi2 wide-azimuth survey, known as Bayou Boeuf, is designed to image the Austin Chalk play and provide a better understanding of the formations in this area, which have recently regained industry interest.

The Bayou Boeuf survey provides coverage over the Avoyelles, Rapides, Evangeline and Saint Landry Parishes. Permitting is nearly complete and acquisition is expected to commence in September 2019.

Delivery of fast-track products and final results is expected for Q1 and Q3 2020, respectively. The data will be processed by CGG using an advanced AVO-compliant sequence in order to ensure the final data is reservoir-ready, paving the way for a fast-track Reservoir Characterization Package (ResPack Fast) that will deliver key elastic rock property volumes to assist in further development of the reservoir.
