    CGG wins extension for work with PEMEX

    Contracts, Tenders and Rates // December 19, 2003
    CGG has announced that Pemex has extended its contract for the provision of technical support for a further three years. This is the third in a series of key contracts relating to seismic data processing, reservoir geophysics and technical support that Mexico's national oil company has renewed with CGG's Mexican subsidiary, CMG, in the last few months.

    CGG deploys its data processing and reservoir expertise in Mexico out of its dedicated processing center in Villa Hermosa, where a 2,000+-CPU cluster is migrating massive surveys in record times with leading-edge technology in order to reduce processingtimes and speed up the exploration cycle.

    Technical support in high-end seismic processing is in turn provided to Pemex's National Seismic Processing Center, the CNPS, also based in Villa Hermosa. The CNPS runs Kirchhoff PSTM algorithms on its IBM 1024 CP Linux cluster operated by a team of CGGgeophysicists and IT engineers.
