Permian Basin - West Texas

CGG continues to expand its multi-client data library in the Permian Basin, one of the most prolific areas in North America, with the acquisition of Gini, the reprocessing and upgrading of Leoncita and the addition of data for the Hobo Merge. Setting a new standard, these data sets employ the latest processing technology to address the noise and statics challenges in the area and enable better imaging. Several of our Permian Basin projects use a multi-disciplinary approach including advanced reservoir characterization to provide a complete Reservoir Package (ResPack).

Permian Basin

The Hobo and Gypsy surveys were designed to target the Spraberry and Wolfcamp formations of Permian age, while the Avalon high-end 3D seismic survey, offering 400-fold broadband data, targets the Wolfcamp and Bone Spring formations. Our complete reservoir package for these three surveys ties the geophysical data to the geology, enabling enhanced sweet spot detection and improved hazard avoidance for optimal well placement.

Gini is a new 481 square mile 3D survey, acquired using advanced broadband EmphasSeis™ sweeps and 3C multi-component sensors. This survey was also designed to target multiple structures, including the Wolfcamp and Bone Spring formations. A preliminary PSTM is available now, an Orthorhombic OVT PSTM will be available in May and a Kirchhoff TTI PSDM will be available in July.

The Leoncita Merge is located south of Gini, near the Alpine High. This survey covers 157 square miles and targets not only the Wolfcamp, but also the Barnett Shale.

CGG has also entered into a brokerage agreement, adding the Grey Ranch Merge and ULS Ranch to its West Texas data library. These two surveys are located east of Leoncita and provide imaging of multiple targets in the Val Verde, a sub-basin of the Permian Basin.

Final products for the Leoncita Merge, Grey Ranch Merge and ULS Ranch are all available for licensing.
