CGG informed that the data processing for Phase 1 of its Davros 3D BroadSeis and BroadSource multi-client survey in the Northern Carnarvon Basin off Western Australia has been completed.

With over 6,400 km2 already acquired, Davros is the largest multi-client seismic program ever to be acquired and processed by CGG in the Asia-Pacific region, the company noted.

The survey has been processed by CGG’s Perth and Melbourne centers, using the company’s subsurface imaging technology including pre-stack depth migration (PSDM) and demultiple algorithms to provide the highest-resolution images. Processing of Phase 2 of the survey is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2016.

Sophie Zurquiyah, chief operating officer, geology, geophysics & reservoir, CGG, said: “As we anticipated, the new broadband data from our Davros survey is delivering deeper and clearer images than previously seen in this area. As a result of the exceptional penetration power of the BroadSeis low frequencies, at least 20 km of sediment is visible. When combined with our advanced imaging technologies, this new data shows exceptional clarity of the deep geological structure and dramatically enhances understanding of this prospective area.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
