CGG awarded first BroadSeis 3D survey in ColombiaProjects and Operations // June 14, 2013
CGG has been awarded a contract by a subsidiary of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation and partner Ecopetrol to acquire and process a 5,500-km2 3D BroadSeis seismic survey on the Caribbean coast offshore Colombia. This is the largest marine seismic programme ever acquired in Colombian waters and the first proprietary BroadSeis survey to be conducted in the country.
The survey, covering portions of the Col 5, Ura 4, Fuerte Norte, Fuerte Sur and Purple Angel blocks, will be acquired by the CGG Viking towing a 10 x 100 x 7050 m spread in a BroadSeis configuration using steerable Sercel Sentinel solid streamers and CGG’s proprietary Dovetail acquisition solution.
The survey will start in the third quarter of 2013 and is expected to take four months. The survey data set will be processed in CGG’s Houston data centre.
