Myanmar: CGG Launches Subsurface Imaging Center

CGG has recently inaugurated an open subsurface imaging center in Yangon to service and support anticipated growth in Myanmar’s oil and gas exploration sector.

Myanmar’s Deputy Minister for the Ministry of Energy, His Excellency, U Aung Htoo, wasguest of honor at the inauguration ceremony for CGG’s new Myanmar subsuface imaging center.


The new center is the first of its kind to be opened in Myanmar by a major international geoscience company.

The inauguration ceremony was attended by Myanmar’s Deputy Minister for the Ministry of Energy, His Excellency, U Aung Htoo, the guest of honor, and over 50 client representatives.

The aim of the center is to give international and local E&P companies operating in Myanmar onsite access to CGG’s industry-leading subsurface imaging technology and expertise. Over time the center will also act as a base from which CGG intends to expand its business in the country.

The new center is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art hardware and CGG’s renowned seismic processing software to meet the subsurface imaging requirements of CGG’s clients operating in Myanmar. A fast dedicated network link to CGG’s Singapore hub is also available for processing large data volumes.

The team of highly experienced native Myanmar geophysicists running the center is expected to expand with the anticipated growth in the Myanmar oil and gas exploration sector. As in other regions of the world, CGG is strongly committed to training and developing local data processing talents in Myanmar.

Sophie Zurquiyah, Senior Executive Vice President, Geology, Geophysics & Reservoir, CGG, said: “With the Myanmar government’s recent award of 16 onshore and 20 offshore blocks to international and local oil and gas companies, we foresee a quickening in the pace of exploration activity over the next 18 months. CGG’s launch of a subsurface imaging center in Myanmar underlines our commitment to participating in the opening up of Myanmar to the international E&P industry. We intend to build on our new center’s strong local presence to help unlock the potential of this emerging market.”
