Onshore & Offshore Acquisition Surveys

Seismic crews and vessels are sent out around the world to acquire surveys in diverse environments such as sea, forest, desert, swamp, as well as land-sea transition zones and protected natural sites.

Data Processing & Interpretation

The recorded seismic data undergo preliminary processing and stringent quality control checks in the field before being sent to a CGG processing center. Once in the center, teams of geophysicists use their technical and creative skills to create sophisticated subsurface images from this raw data.

Geophysical Equipment

Our equipment division, Sercel, is the world's leading supplier of seismic acquisition systems. The company designs, manufactures, sells and supports a full range of high-tech, integrated equipment that operates reliably and efficiently in even the most adverse conditions.
