Marine Acquisition

CGG offers the complete range of marine acquisition services, providing high-end broadband solutions. We provide state-of-the-art narrow, wide and full-azimuth towed streamer exploration, development and 4D seismic surveys and complementary non-seismic techniques such as gravity and magnetic surveys. In partnership with our seabed joint venture, we provide hybrid node-streamer surveys and seamless acquisition from deep to shallow water. Intrinsic to all these activities is our commitment to service and quality.

With the acquisition of Fugro's geoscience division we now have the largest seismic fleet of modern high-end vessels. Fugro's C-class vessels join our recently upgraded fleet, which has seen a one billion dollar investment in modernization over the last three years and includes two state-of-the-art 20-streamer Ulstein SX120 X-BOWS®.

  • The entire fleet is fitted with Sercel Sentinel® solid streamers.
  • All vessels have steerable streamers, most deploying the innovative Sercel Nautilus® 3-in-1 streamer positioning, depth control and steering device.
  • All vessels are capable of acquiring BroadSeisTM unrivalled broadband data.
  • BroadSourceTM, a broadband source that complements BroadSeis, is currently available on some vessels and is being rolled out across the fleet.

Sentinel streamers

  • The X-Bows and C-class vessels have DNV-CLEAN notation for the lowest environmental impact.
  • The entire fleet can run on MGO (marine gas oil) for lower emissions than standard heavy oil
  • Solid streamers are environmentally friendly and have been proven in sensitive frontier areas such as the Arctic. They have the highest resistance to physical damage in the industry.
  • Solid streamers are recognized as being the quietest in the industry, with the best low-frequency signal-noise ratio.
