Discovering Australia

Integrated GeoScience Solutions for Mineral and Hydrocarbon Exploration & Production

The North West Shelf of Australia is one of the most prospective hydrocarbon areas in the world, containing significant oil and multi-TCF gas discoveries and is home to the Gorgon and Pluto LNG projects. Australia is also rich in mineral deposits. CGG's integrated geoscience solutions can help the successful exploitation of all these reserves, both onshore and offshore.

Multi-Disciplinary Multi-Client Data

Our data library includes the most advanced broadband seismic datasets, with state-of-the-art subsurface imaging. We have just acquired over 7,000km2 of an 11,000km2 of BroadSeis™-BroadSource™ data in the Northern Carnarvon Basin, which is currently being processed through the latest velocity modeling and depth imaging algorithms. We have almost 2 million line km of aeromagnetic data in Australasia and an advanced airborne gravity gradiometer survey in East Indonesia.

Our extensive geological knowledge of the area includes various non-proprietary Robertson Studies. Subscription geological database products and tools enable plays to be evaluated and deliver valuable insight into the potential prospectivity.

Our Seep Explorer database is an important tool in the detection of active oil and gas seeps both on and offshore to reduce exploration risk in under-explored basins.

Marine Acquisition

Seismic Acquisition Services

Our marine towed-streamer acquisition systems can acquire the broadest bandwidth in the industry at over 6 octaves. We believe that BroadSource with BroadSeis delivers the optimum solution for most geology, but can combine our broadband source with a slant or deep-towed flat streamer if required.

Our integrated vessel, source and streamer steering systems enable high repeatability for 4D monitoring, while our Full Source Characterization uses the SeaBox system to monitor the stability of the source signature in near real time.

FS-Q-Tomo GeoSoftware

Subsurface Imaging and Reservoir Characterization

Our world-leading subsurface imaging experts preserve the full bandwidth of the data in processing to deliver reservoir-quality seismic data. Locally focused R&D is able to develop the algorithms to cope with the regional challenges, such as multiple attenuation and data driven Frequency Shift Q-tomography, working with Q-PSDM to compensate for the intrinsic absorption of the earth. The local expertise is backed up by a global research group to provide exceptional people using remarkable technology to deliver outstanding service.

Powered by CGG GeoSoftware's leading tools in seismic reservoir characterization and geomechanics, and supported by an expert team of geophysicists, petrophysicists, geologists and engineers, CGG GeoConsulting provides a unique breadth of experience and capability to help solve our clients conventional and unconventional reservoir needs.

Our InSAR surface deformation monitoring solutions  improve reservoir management and strengthen geohazard assessments.


Multi-Physics Solutions

CGG Multi-Physics has a long history of service to the mineral exploration industry in Australia. Our key technologies span a wide range of applications and tailored solutions for all aspects of exploration from project development to picking drill targets, and can be combined with seismic data to give confidence to interpretation of sparse datasets. Offshore, marine gravity data can be used as an aid to interpretation and to constrain velocity modeling.

The Falcon Plus, purpose-designed Airborne Gravity Gradiometry system provides high resolution with the lowest noise, and our Helicopter EM capabilities range from high resolution and shallow to powerful and deep.
