Geological Products and databases

Complementing its geophysical multi-client datasets, CGG has a rich suite of geological multi-client products that covers virtually all geological and geoscience disciplines and has a truly global footprint (further information available through our GeoStore). These datasets include a legacy of more than 50 years of Robertson Studies, being added to on a continuous basis, with new studies targeted at addressing today's emerging exploration challenges.

Regional reports are augmented by a range of subscription products, ranging from exploration focused databases, through cutting edge predictive tools to innovative analogue products. With additional multi-client geological data from our Satellite Mapping team, from GeoSpec and from our Data Management Services group, CGG offers an unrivalled multi-client library.

New project development is increasingly multi-disciplinary in nature, supporting the full scope of CGG's capabilities, and offers effective and innovative datasets and insights to keep exploration moving in today's challenging environments.
