PDO awards CGG's service contract extension until 2021
The contract calls for CGG to provide subsurface imaging technology and services at its dedicated processing centre in Muscat
Geoscience services provider CGG has announced it has won an extension, until the end of 2021, of its contract with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) for the provision of subsurface imaging technology and services at its dedicated processing centre (DPC) in Muscat.
Within the terms of the extension, the DPC’s capacity, resources and responsibilities will be expanded to respond to the specific requirements of PDO’s data acquisition strategy.
CGG, in a press release, also mentions it will implement its significant In-Country Value initiatives, such as developing expert local staff, onsite training, and educational and mentoring support to the Sultan Qaboos University.
CGG has operated the DPC in a collaborative working relationship with PDO since 1994. Its land processing specialists deliver the full range of time and depth imaging services to process PDO’s very large, predominantly high-density wide-azimuth onshore seismic data sets.
Jean-Georges Malcor, CEO of CGG, was quoted in the press release as saying: “CGG’s Muscat DPC is the largest and longest-running centre of its kind in the Middle East. Over the years, CGG and PDO have established a strong partnership based on trust and a shared ambition to go the extra mile to achieve the very best results to meet PDO’s business objectives.”
“We are therefore delighted to continue accompanying PDO in their ambitious strategy to successfully explore the potential of the most geologically complex parts of Oman,” Malcor said.
