Data Operations


E&P data requires significant investment to collect, and can often not be replaced if corrupted or lost. The data retains significant value not just because of the cost of replacement, but also its potential value in the market and use in valuing hydrocarbon reserves, and supporting future investment decisions.

In managing E&P data, CGG is protecting and securing one of the most valuable assets any O&G company has."

Creating the right physical or digital environment, managed by the right people and technology, is a key reason so many O&G companies choose CGG as their data storage partner. E&P data has value measured in decades, not years, and requires management by a team of dedicated E&P specialists who understand the value of the data.

Data storage is just the first step to releasing the value in physical data, CGG offers a complete range of services focused on improving the quality, richness and speed of access to the data.

  • Physical document storage
  • Digital records storage
