All-Terrain Expertise

CGG has over 80 years of experience in overcoming the difficulties of acquiring surveys in challenging conditions around the world. Today, frontier areas for natural resource exploration are increasingly complex, sensitive and operationally challenging whilst mature onshore basins are increasingly obstructed by urban and industrial infrastructure. Our current operational experience encompasses agile LiteSeis™ 2D and light 3D crews in urban, agricultural and jungle settings to UltraSeis™ mega-crews operating in open desert. Our Seabed Geosolutions joint venture provides coverage for shallow water areas and transition zones.

Whatever the environment, we draw on the latest Sercel equipment, proprietary technology and multi-disciplinary expertise to address the geographic and geophysical challenges to meet your seismic requirements, while minimizing the duration and environmental footprint of our operation.
