Located in the country’s deep waters, the project has received firm industry commitments and will deliver early products in late February 2024. The agreement also includes the generation of well and geological products that will be delivered through CGG’s GeoWells platform.

CGG has committed to reimaging over 5500 km2 of 3D seismic data in the complex eastern Columbus basin, using its proprietary TL-FWI imaging technology, which will deliver significantly improved seismic images and provide a better understanding of the geological systems in this underexplored part of the basin.

Dechun Lin, EVP, Earth Data, CGG, said, “We are pleased to have reached this multi-client agreement with the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. We will use our established leadership in geoscience solutions and cutting-edge imaging technology to support this Caribbean Island nation’s ability to effectively address its energy needs and goals.”
