CGG has been awarded permits by the Comision Nacional de Hidrocarburos (CNH) to conduct airborne gravity and magnetic surveys over the Mexican portion of the Gulf of Mexico (GOM). The permits cover areas in the Perdido Fold Belt and Mexican Ridges regions, including both shallow and deep water of the GOM. The airborne survey will allow data collection through the “transition zone” from the marine environment to the on-shore, allowing for geological structures to be correlated between the two environments.
We believe that the Mexican Gulf of Mexico has significant new petroleum potential, both in the shallow and deep water areas and that CGG’s ability to image complex geological environments will help unlock that potential. The airborne gravity and magnetic data is an important step to understanding the regional geology and prospectivity of the Mexican waters. A comprehensive interpretation, combining this new data set with available geologic and geophysical data, will also be undertaken by CGG’s Multi-Physics Imaging team. Deliverables will include a full geophysical interpretation report, including definition of basement lithology and structure, mapping of sediment fairways and depositional-centers and any intrusives or salt which may be present in the sedimentary section. The final results will be presented in ArcGIS® format for assimilation into the clients’ own seismic, geological and well control databases. These survey deliverables will provide significant assistance to exploration and de-risking of prospective areas by oil companies.
Data acquisition over Area 1 is complete and is immediately available, with interpretation products available shortly. Please contact us for further information about licensing options for any portion of our permit areas.
The strength of the Multi-Physics offering is the ability to map several unique rock properties and integrate these with multiple complementary data sources as dictated by the geological challenge.
