CGG Delivers Final Encontrado Data

CGG has delivered the final products from its Encontrado multi-client reprocessing project across the Gulf of Mexico’s prolific Perdido fold belt, to the Comision Nacional de Hidrocarburos (CNH).

The final reverse time migration (RTM), Kirchhoff migration and associated data volumes covering a vast 38,000 sq km area straddling the Mexico/USA border are now available on a non-exclusive basis.

The improved depth information in the final volume has a material impact on the understanding of the petroleum systems and the location, timing, volume and type of hydrocarbons that may have charged the reservoirs.

Collectively, these improvements enable an enhanced assessment of prospectivity in this emerging exploration frontier.

Furthermore, CGG has embarked on a JumpStart fully integrated geoscience program to complement the seismic data from the Encontrado project.

JumpStart programs are designed to review, validate, calibrate and interpret all available seismic, well and geologic data to deliver all the information needed in one place for a comprehensive understanding of the petroleum systems present.

Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO, CGG, said: “The final images obtained from the advanced high-end processing sequence will allow detailed geological interpretation and be suitable for both basin-scale exploration and potential prospect evaluation. By undertaking the Encontrado reprocessing and a JumpStart geoscience program, CGG is playing a leading role in helping to turn this frontier area into a well-understood basin.”
