    Projects and Operations // June 7, 2006

    C & C Geomar in Ciudad del Carmen has announced that it recently completed a large multichannel high-resolution seismic survey for Pemex Exploration y Production.

    The survey, located in the southern portion of the Gulf of Mexico, utilized surface navigation, multibeam bathymetry, a subbottom profiler, side scan sonar and a 24-channel multichannel seismic system to collected geophysical data in water depths ranging from 7m to 1,700m.

    The survey included 34 geophysical sites and nine corridors in an area over 987 square miles. 

    The company said its fully digital streamer system, which is permanently mobilized on Moana Wave, "uses cutting edge technology which differentiates it from other pseudo-digital multichannel systems in available in the Gulf of Mexico." 

    Jose Aguilar, C & C Geomar’s General Manager, said: "The data that we collected is fantastic. IMP, the supervising company for the project, was extremely satisfied with our field and office performance”. 

    Moana Wave is presently performing additional high-resolution seismic surveys in the Gulf of Mexico.
