Intelligence from Imagery

Intelligence from Imagery

CGG's Satellite Mapping group is a world-leading supplier of satellite images, multi-client products and bespoke mapping services. Since 1972 our solutions have responded to the challenging requirements of international clients - reducing risk and enhancing knowledge during the exploration, development and production of natural resources in offshore and onshore environments.

Satellite Imagery and Data

Satellite Imagery & Data

As a leading independent distributor of commercial satellite imagery and elevation data, we provide impartial advice on the most appropriate information to meet requirements.

Our experts help clients select optimal data, assist with data processing and enhancements, and provide a range of specialist value-added solutions to help clients maximize intelligence from imagery.

Our experienced geoscientists and remote sensing experts derive intelligence from imagery across offshore and onshore environments."

Offshore Solutions

Offshore Solutions

Over the last 20 years we have developed industry-leading solutions that help de-risk exploration activities and offshore operations.

Our Seep Explorer: Global Offshore Seeps Database (GOSD) (part of our new Seep Explorer product suite) is a world-leading exploration product, supported by a team of experienced petroleum geologists, GIS specialists and remote sensing professionals. Our RigMon pollution monitoring service is used for environmental benchmarking, disaster response and the monitoring of exploration wells and production facilities.

Additional offshore services are provided to meet other environmental and infrastructure challenges such as bathymetric mapping of shallow water environments to provide focus for future surveys and optimizing seismic grid alignment, regional ice monitoring solutions to assess pack ice and icebergs, and internal wave/soliton mapping to help mitigate potential risks posed to offshore activities.

Onshore Solutions

Onshore Solutions

We provide world-leading onshore remote sensing services to the oil and gas, mining, environmental and civil engineering industries.

Our remote sensing geologists are experts in interpreting structural geology from satellite imagery and elevation data. Our regional- and local-scale geological studies are primarily used to guide exploration activities in Oil & Gas and Mining, but also provide context for Geohazard and Engineering applications.

Our surface deformation (InSAR) services provide clients with unique intelligence on the location, extent, magnitude and evolution of deformation. InSAR is widely used within Oil & Gas, Mining and Engineering projects to maximize production/construction knowledge, increase safety and ensure legal compliance.

Large infrastructure projects, particularly those that traverse large regions and difficult terrain, benefit from the increased intelligence offered by a combination of satellite data. Our terrain characterization service helps optimize planned routes for pipelines and transport infrastructure, and when combined with geohazard mapping solutions, can help mitigate the impact of natural hazards whilst minimizing project costs.

As part of CGG we are able to provide fully integrated solutions that combine complementary products, services and expertise.
