CGG has started acquisition of a high-density, rich-azimuth, towed-streamer multi-client survey in the UK West Shetland Basin.

The 3,600 sq km survey focuses on delivering high-resolution seismic data in a prospective but underexplored area north-west of the Shetland Isles over the northern part of the Rona Ridge. A fast-track PreSDM data set will be available in Q1 2019, CGG noted.

Two vessels, the Oceanic Vega and the Geo Caribbean, are being deployed on the project. Each vessel operates triple sources using simultaneous source technology.

The data will be processed in depth using CGG’s broadband imaging technology, including advanced de-blending and Full-Waveform Inversion velocity modeling.

The final data will be available in mid-2019.

Sophie Zurquiyah, CEO, CGG said: “This survey is another example of CGG working closely with clients to deliver the best possible subsurface images in a cost-effective and timely manner. Until now, oil and gas companies interested in the exploration potential of this part of the West Shetland Basin have lacked high-quality seismic data. We expect our new rich-azimuth images to reveal an unprecedented level of detail in this exciting frontier area.”
