CGGVeritas Returns to Algeria with Land Seismic Award

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/9/2012, Location: Africa

CGGVeritas announced that it is set to resume land seismic acquisition operations in Algeria after the award of a 3D vibroseis survey by Groupement Timimoun (GTIM), a joint venture between Sonatrach, Total EP Algérie and CEPSA. This award has been the result of an Open Call for Tender process.

This survey, covering a total surface area of 2,240 km2 over the Timimoun block in the south of Algeria, has been commissioned as the first phase in the Timimoun unconventional gas field development plan.

The CGGVeritas high-channel-count crew deployed for this project will use two high-end proprietary acquisition technologies, High-Productivity Vibroseis Acquisition (HPVATM) and EmphaSeisTM broadband vibroseis, to acquire the high-density, broadband dataset required for detailed reservoir characterization. Recorded in a timeframe comparable to that of conventional data, the dataset will also be processed in the field with a fast turnaround to ensure the results are delivered in time to determine the field’s preliminary drilling plan.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGGVeritas, said: "This award marks the welcome return of a CGGVeritas land crew to Algeria after 15 years of absence. We are seeing growing recognition among oil companies operating in Algeria of the crucial role played by high-end seismic in the development and exploitation of oil and gas fields."
