UK 32nd Licensing Round

CGG Multi-Client data library offers the most recent and most advanced seismic coverage of the Central North Sea (CNS), North Viking Graben (NVG), Southern North Sea (SNS) and West of Shetlands (WOS). OGA 32nd License Round includes a significant number of blocks on offer over CGG’s North Sea datasets.

These groundbreaking datasets, processed with the latest technologies, will assist the industry with their exploration and production challenges, designed to help develop new opportunities within the mature areas of the UK Continental Shelf.

Cornerstone Evolution is the latest iteration of central north sea reprocessing, using the latest cutting-edge imaging technology to create a seamless volume of over 50,000 km² of high-quality, long-offset data.

If you are looking for coverage outside of our core Cornerstone area, or in the wider UKCS, our TerraCube™ suite of interpretative products based on legacy well and reprocessed seismic data provides regional context.

Cornerstone Evolution

CGG is currently reprocessing its Cornerstone surveys in the Central North Sea, using the latest cutting-edge imaging technology to create a seamless volume of over 50,000km2 of high-quality seismic data. This dataset is providing a truly regional understanding of the CNS and is available to help de-risk acreage covered by the the 32nd UK Offshore Licensing Round.

The Evolution workflow has been tailored to address the key geophysical and geological challenges in the basin. Click on the links below to find out more:




  • Over 50,000 km² of high-quality, long-offset data, fully merged PSDM data
  • Application of CGG’s latest imaging technology, including Q-Tomography, Q-FWI and Q-RTM
  • Final PSDM data sets will include Least Squares Q-Kirchhoff and Wave Equation migrations
  • Rigorous imaging using extensive well control
  • Merged bandwidth-extended conventional and BroadSeis™ data
  • Dual Azimuth (DAz) dataset for enhanced illumination, approx. 8,600 km² over the HPHT area
  • Added value Pore Pressure Prediction and Facies Finder products available
