    The newly upgraded and re-built seismic survey vessel CGG Mistral has completed an exclusive 3D survey off the west coast of Morocco two weeks ahead of schedule, while deploying Sercel Solid Seal streamers for the first time on a commercial project. Thevessel acquired the 1,750 sq km programme with a spread of eight 6,000-m Solid Seal streamers.

    Gérard Chambovet, Senior Executive Vice President of CGG Services, said: "We are extremely satisfied with the Mistral's performance on this survey and her successful deployment of the Solid Seal on its first commercial assignment, confirming its exceptional reliability and noise reduction capabilities."

    Industry interest in solid streamer data acquisition is confirmed by the CGG Mistral's already promising backlog running into next year. The vessel is currently sailing to Trinidad where she has been awarded an exclusive contract by a major oil and gas company.
