The Service Difference
In addition to safe operations, quiet streamers and high quality data, CGG provides an integrated service that spans the entire project life cycle, from conception through operation planning, to acquisition and reporting:
- Detailed planning and feasibility studies allow
optimization of all acquisition parameters
- streamer length, depth and offset
- source depth and size
- feasibility studies for benefit and efficiency of wide azimuth or coil acquisition and over-under cables, etc.
- Shore-based personnel, assigned to support each crew, follow acquisition projects from start to finish and remain in constant liaison with the crew, operations support staff and, most importantly, the client.
- Pool of onshore and offshore personnel with extensive project experience to ensure overall data quality and operational efficiency.
- Our flexible approach to operations and dedication to problem-solving encourages all staff to be alert to problems and innovative in finding solutions. The wealth of experience in our crews means that if the unexpected happens they know what to do.
- This unique combination of skills allows CGG to execute all types of surveys with consistent results – 2D, 3D, 4D, Wide Azimuth, long-offset and undershoot surveys.
Flexibility and Experience
Service is not just about technology. The experience of the crew means that they can often provide simple straightforward solutions for problems that might otherwise require a port call.
In a recent survey in the Far East, early QC plots of the data showed that it was not being recorded with long enough offsets to resolve the target. Due to the flexibility of the system, the spares carried and the efficiency of the crew, it was possible to extend the streamers from six to eight kilometers with the minimum of disruption.
While shooting a survey in the Beaufort Sea, the shallow water depths in one area were considered to be a threat to the streamer lead-ins used in conventional configurations. To keep the spread from being too deep, but not exacerbate problems with the ice by adding extra floats, the crew developed innovative new rigging techniques. This system worked, with no incidents of any kind associated with the streamer deployment and rigging system.
