SEABED GEOSOLUTIONS HAS COMMENCED ACQUISITION OF CGG’S FIRST MULTI-CLIENT OBN SURVEY IN MISSISSIPPI CANYON, GULF OF MEXICO

Seabed Geosolutions announces its first contract with CGG to provide multi-client ocean bottom node (OBN) survey acquisition services in the Mississippi Canyon area of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

The 3D node project will utilise Seabed Geosolutions’ advanced 4C technology CASE Abyss®ocean bottom nodes, deployed by remotely operated vehicles to 2,100 meter water depths, illuminating a challenging target area in one of the deepest offshore production areas in the world.

This project is evidence that OBN technology is being increasingly used for multi-client seismic surveys, further growing the market and commercial opportunities for this technology.

Stephan Midenet, CEO, Seabed Geosolutions: ‘We are excited to embark on our first OBN project with CGG over the highly prospective Mississippi Canyon area using our proven CASE Abyss node technology. The survey will combine our expertise in ocean bottom seismic operations with CGG’s advanced OBN imaging technology and experience.’
